Scott Van Pelt says he lost the ability smell and can’t taste anything. That is because he found out he tested positive for COVID-29.
“Won’t be doing shows for a bit after a positive Covid-19 test. Thankfully, no fever & I feel fine,” Van Pelt tweeted. “Just can’t smell or taste anything which was my clue to go get a test. So, I will hunker down and hopefully can be back at it before too long.”
