From sickness to health

Tony Shalhoub is revealing the difficult journey with his wife Brooke Adams, after they both tested positive for the Coronavirus.

Despite being healthy and thankful now, Shalhoub shares just how sick he and Adams got.

"Last month, my wife Brooke and I came down with the virus, and it was a pretty rough few weeks. But we realize that so many other people have and had it a lot worse," he said while appearing on The At-Home Variety Show.


While on the show, Shalhoub reprises his Emmy-winning role as "Adrian Monk," imagining how the germ-obsessive character would be doing during the pandemic.

"I hope you are all being careful and following the protocol. We really are all 'Monk' now," he said.

Nearing the end of the show, Shalboub announces it is 7:00pm, a time when those in urban settings clap and cheer for the first responders working diligently to heal those infected.

"Must be 7:00 — time to go out and show our appreciation to all our heroes: the health care workers, the first responders. Let's go. Stay safe and stay sane," he said, walking to his balcony to applaud the New Yorkers risking their lives.
