Arizona Cardinals owner Micheal Bidwell has been released from a hospital in Rhode Island following his positive test for the coronavirus last week.
According to reports, the Cardinals believe that the 55-year old Bidwell caught COVID-19 while traveling and spending time on the East Coast over the past several weeks.
“This week I learned first-hand just how serious COVID-19 is,” Bidwill said in a statement (h/t ESPN). “My immense appreciation for all those on the front lines of this pandemic has only increased and I am particularly grateful to the tremendous nurses and doctors at Newport [Rhode Island] Hospital.
“I am also overwhelmed by the outpouring of kindness from the Red Sea as well as so many friends and colleagues in Arizona and throughout the country. I’m very fortunate to have this experience behind me and strongly encourage everyone to continue practicing the important measures to avoid it themselves.”
