Richard Schiff hospitalized for COVID-19


“The Good Doctor” and “West Wing” star Richard Schiff revealed on Monday that he had been hospitalized with COVID-19, but maintained he “shows improvement every day. “Schiff previously tweeted on November 10 that he and his wife, Sheila Kelley – who also has a recurring role on “The Good Doctor” – tested positive for the virus on election day, November 3.

On Monday, in a tweet citing his November 10 post, Schiff wrote, “Covid update. Thank you all for so much love and support. You make it so much easier for @thesheilakelley and me. I am in the hospital on Remdesivir, O2 and steroids showing improvement every day. Sheila is home and better but still quite ill. I love you all. “

Meanwhile, Variety confirmed that “The Good Doctor” has continued production of the series in Vancouver, with the filming schedule adjusted to accommodate the absence of Schiff and Kelley.

Kelley also posted about Schiff’s hospitalization on Instagram, writing: “The past 72 hours have been tough. LOML @therichardschiff is now in the hospital on oxygen and remdesivir. Thank you all for the prayers and the love. We feel them. He’s getting better. Become stronger. “

In the same article, Kelley mentioned that their son, Gus, also had COVID-19. “My son and I always ride this weird roller coaster up and down and around,” she writes. “I have never experienced anything like this in my life. One minute I’m feeling pretty good and the next I’m having trouble breathing.

Although Kelley is not sure where they caught the virus, he writes, “It could have been the gym. Could have been washed away. It’s impossible to know, ”she urged her fans to stay safe.

“Continue to hide yourself. Hand washing. Stay away from this virus, ”Kelley wrote.

Deadline was the first to announce the news of “The Good Doctor” remaining in production.
