Dale Jarrett says he's in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19

NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett announced Tuesday that he tested positive for COVID-19 and now is in quarantine.

The 63-year-old Jarrett broke the news during NASCAR's Hall of Fame announcement, explaining that this is why he did not return to NBCSN's studio with the other hosts.

The three-time Daytona 500 winner and 1999 Cup champion said that the only symptom he has is a slight cough and that he is doing well.

"I've been one of the very fortunate ones that my symptom has only been a slight cough throughout all of this, and it's really getting less and less each day, so I'm doing very, very well," Jarrett said. "All I can say is follow all the guidelines, stay as safe as you possibly can, and hopefully we can all get through this in the very near future."
