As spotted on The Source Jim Jones also made sure to reinforce the need to stay safe after he too disclosed he had Coronavirus. He shared his testimonial via a video from his Instagram account. “I was contemplating whether I should do this or keep my business to myself but I think it’s more important for me to do this,” Jones said. “I urge everybody to stay safe out there. COVID is real. I was running around here thinking I was Superman and COVID knocked the socks off Superman. So I urge and encourage everybody to please continue to mask up, please continue with hand sanitizer, social distance as much as you can, try to stay away from as many packed and crowded places. This sh*t is no joke. I really felt it and I don’t want nobody to feel like how I felt.”

Stay safe everyone.
