Richard Schiff, known for The Good Doctor, tested positive for coronavirus a few days ago. He shared the news on social media on November 3. The actor has now taken to Twitter to say that he is "showing some improvement every day."

Schiff's wife Sheila Kelley has also tested positive for the virus. While she is at home and taking the necessary treatment, Schiff is still in the hospital. 

He wrote, “Covid update. Thank you all for so much love and support. You’re making it so much easier for Sheila and me. I am in the hospital on Remdesivir, O2 and steroids showing some improvement every day. Sheila is home and doing better but still fairly ill. Love you all.”

Despite his absence, The West Wing shooting is going on in Vancouver. The makers have planned the schedule to make up for his absence.

Meanwhile, Sheila Kelley wrote on Instagram, "The last 72 hours have been tough. Richard Schiff is now in the hospital on oxygen and Remdesivir. Thank you all for the prayers and love. We feel them. He’s doing better. Getting stronger.”

She also wrote, “My son and I are still riding this strange covid coaster of up and then down and all around,” she wrote. “I have never experienced anything like this before in my life. One minute I’m feeling pretty good and the next, I’m struggling to breathe.”
