Hugh Jackman has just tested positive for COVID-19. The Logan actor took to his official social media accounts to share the results of his recent test to make sure his fans got the news from him first.

Jackman shared a video of himself addressing the result of his COVID-19 testing. Although testing positive would usually have people feeling down, the Greatest Showman star kept a light-hearted tone in his video.


"Just wanted you to hear it from me. I tested positive for covid. Mild symptoms and as soon as I’m cleared … looking forward to getting back to The Winter Garden!" Jackman wrote. He also tagged @MusicManBway in the tweet.

In the video, Jackman confirmed that he is only experiencing mild symptoms like a cold, an itchy throat, and a runny nose. He also promised his fans that he will do everything he can to get better soon. Finally, he told his followers to stay safe and he'll be back on stage soon.

Hugh Jackman is supposed to be performing several dates on Broadway for his show The Music Man. However, the Wolverine actor is now expected to isolate for at least 14 days until his symptoms are cleared. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.


It's unfortunate that Jackman has tested positive for COVID-19. However, the X-Men star is still lucky enough to only experience mild symptoms. With that in mind, we're hoping for Jackman's speedy recovery so he could return on stage by early next year.

The increasing number of COVID-19 cases with the Omicron variant has been causing some concerns for the public. For instance, the red-carpet premiere event of The Book of Boba Fett had been postponed to a later date because of new cases in California. The event has been pushed back to February instead.
