Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard shared Tuesday (Nov. 17) via Instagram that he's back at the family dinner table following a negative COVID-19 test

"After 13 days of being on the tour bus in the driveway I'm finally covid free and back in the house," Hubbard wrote on social media. "Family dinner never felt so good. So thankful."

Hubbard announced Nov. 9 via social media that he'd tested positive for COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus).

"Some of y'all guessed it..... Got the Rona," Hubbard wrote, adding that he's "Asymptomatic. Quarantining on bus. Miss my family. Writing songs. Thankful."

Hubbard's stayed in a tour bus parked in the driveway of his family's Nashville home to protect his wife Hayley Hubbard and their three kids, Liv, Luca and baby boy Atlas.

The FGL member previously shared a Nov. 8 Instagram post, asking fans if they had any idea why he was hanging out in his tour bus during a pandemic.

Hubbard's diagnosis forced the cancellation of Florida Georgia Line's performance at this year CMA Awards. The Country Music Association pulled Lee Brice from its Nov. 11 lineup of live performers following his recent positive test. Brice was slated to sing "I Hope You're Happy Now" with duet partner Carly Pearce. Other lineup scratches due to COVID-19 included Lady A and fiddler Jenee Fleenor.

Florida Georgia Line earned a 2020 CMA Awards nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year, which was won by award show regulars Dan + Shay.

Although alleged political differences between Hubbard and Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley sparked rumors of a potential breakup, the duo just announced a multi-year touring partnership with Live Nation.

"This past year has given us a chance to spend more time writing, producing, and being creative, but we are itching to get back on the road," said Kelley and Hubbard in a statement, as quoted by Billboard. "We miss our fans, and the live energy and connection we have with them when we hit the stage. Our Live Nation family has been a great partner in the past, and we're excited to be teaming up like this together. Getting back on tour and being able to share our new music can't come soon enough!"
