Jason Momoa Confirms He’s Tested Positive for COVID-19 After Dune Premiere
Actor Jason Momoa announced Monday that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Momoa shared the news on Instagram Monday (which was later shared via a fan TikTok, reported by ), saying he’d been “hit with COVID” sometime after the in-person theatrical premiere of Dune, in which Momoa plays House Atreides’ swordmaster Duncan Idaho.
“There’s a lot of people I met in England, so…I got a lot of aloha from people, but who knows?” Momoa said. “But either way, I’m doing fine. Thank you for all your concerns and love.”
Momoa says he’s now “camped out” in his house. Another Instagram video shows Momoa in good spirits at home hanging out with his friend Erik Ellington, a pro skateboarder.
England’s COVID prevalence has risen to its highest count since the beginning of the year according to Britain’s Office for National Statistics, Reuters reported late last month. 1 in 55 British residents are reportedly experiencing some symptoms of COVID.
Momoa had been filming Aquaman 2 at Warner Bros.’ Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, England. The last significant update on the film came via DC FanDome earlier this year, when DC showed off Momoa’s new Aquaman suit.
