Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard is currently quarantining after testing positive for COVID-19. As can be expected, the country music duo will no longer by performing during Wednesday night’s 2020 CMA Awards.
Hubbard shared through Instagram that he is asymptomatic and quarantining away from his family in his tour bus parked outside their home. Tyler and his wife Hayley have three young children– 2½-year-old Olivia, 15-month-old Luca Reed, and newborn Atlas.
“We’ve been quarantined since Wednesday night when Tyler got his first positive COVID test right after someone told him he may have been exposed … he’s pretty asymptomatic. He did infect two other people and it’s seriously a miracle I don’t have it, because he was barely in the same room [with the other people],” Hayley explained via her Instagram Stories.
“The hardest part for us was going through that list of people we had come into contact with prior to his positive test, thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, we could have infected them and not even known it.’ This has already affected our life and it’s going to affect so many more lives. It’s just such a domino effect. You really realize it when you’re in it.”
She continued, “Tyler was exposed to someone last week who had it, so if I did get it I would probably be showing symptoms tomorrow or the next day. So I’m going to continually get tested and hope that the kids don’t get it if I do have it.”
As an extra precaution, the couple decided to send Atlas to be cared for at their nanny’s home since his immune system is still developing.

Tyler tested positive for COVID 19 — but luckily so far we’re all still negative & he’s asymptomatic for the most part🙏🏻 With all the craziness going on this year it’s extra confirmation how little is in our control. I did have a freak out moment and told Tyler not take it personally because it wasn’t his fault, but yes I was frustrated at the sequence of events and how it seemingly felt like I had to pull most of the weight the last couple months with his surgery right before birth of our 3rd child and now this while we have a newborn that I can’t see for 14 days and 2 very active toddlers…and not to mention it has put some of my projects on hold that I’ve been so excited about. After my “moment” I chose to think of all the MANY positive things, one being that I get lots of one on one time with Olivia and Luca. There’s so much to be grateful for and I can’t wait for Tyler to finish his quarantine so we can all be together as a family again!!
