Turns out that he’s still feeling the symptoms, but they’ve died down a bit so that he’s been allowed to leave the hospital and has now been placed in self isolation. Here’s the full update from his Instagram post:

Hey folks. Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch. Bad news: My wife @ritawilson has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points. But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick. I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve. Hanx
I suppose that’s a great use of social media: updating fans as to his condition and encourage them to self isolate in an attempt to flatten the curve because a lot of people out there are still carrying on as usual despite all advice to the contrary. I guess when they see that even major celebrities are following the rules for once, maybe it’ll click that they need to do so as well to get humanity through this crisis.
