“Hi. About now you’re probably feeling a little tied down, restricting your mobility and like me, you’re tired of this!! Well, I just want to encourage you to have a little more patience,” he wrote.

“I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols and still… I contracted the virus. Yep. it sounds daunting now that over 150,000 Americans are dead because of it. I was one of the lucky ones. Mild symptoms. I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands, and stay socially distant. We can prevail – but ONLY if we follow the rules together. Be well – Stay well,” he concluded.

In the video, Bryan revealed that after recovering he wants to do his part in helping others and will be donating his plasma at UCLA Blood and Platelet Center. He chronicled his experience in the donation process, saying it “only takes about an hour.”

“Thank god for old movies,” he said. We’re so happy to hear he’s feeling better!
