Bishop Anthony B. Taylor posted the following update to his Facebook page, Dec. 15, 2020, regarding his condition after testing positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 10, 2020.

"Just a quick update on my health: The Monoclonal Antibody Infusion I received on Friday, Dec. 11 really has made a big difference, and by Sunday my symptoms had improved markedly. My main symptoms now are just coughing and fatigue, which may continue for some time even when I am out of quarantine. Sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers and support."

Bishop Taylor posted the following to his Facebook page, Dec. 10, 2020, a day after his message stating that he was awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test.

"I want to thank everyone for all of the prayers! Since the results of the COVID-19 test I had taken at UAMS were slow in coming, I decided to go and get the quick test, which, as expected, was positive. So I am quarantined until Dec. 18 at the earliest, counting from when symptoms first appeared.

"As it turns out, being over 65 and in a risk group, I qualified for a Monoclonal Antibody Infusion, the same treatment President Trump got, so I will go and get this infusion tomorrow morning. It may not shorten my quarantine, but it should help reduce the symptoms. Thank you for your prayers and pray also for our seminarians who now all have to be tested too."
