They were exposed to the virus by a member of their team last week, though the severe weather in the state prevented them from getting tested sooner.
Garth explained in a statement that only Trisha’s test came back positive, though he is taking precautions and is quarantining with her.
According to Today, the statement read: “Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together.
“And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”

After adding that they have both been tested twice and that his wife does have symptoms, Garth admitted he is worried about the long-term effects of the virus.
He wrote: “Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible long-term effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan.”
The statement continued: “She’s tough. She’s stronger than me.”
He then asked their fans to send good thoughts and prayers to his wife, stating: “If anyone asks, that’s what you can do for her. That’s what I’m doing.”
This is not the first time Garth and Trisha have dealt with the deadly virus.
