KISS frontman Paul Stanley was spotted breaking COVID-19 isolation guidelines on Tuesday as he walked into the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood without a mask
The 69-year-old rocker was caught exiting a black SUV and heading into the hotel, five after he announced he had tested positive for COVID-19
Paul was seen holding a Starbucks coffee and a white mask, but did not put it on despite being infected
‘REST!! Doctor’s orders so we can hit the road running on Sept. 9th. Staying clear of people for a few more days. Do I think my “freedom” ever includes jeopardizing other people’s health?… No, I don’t,’ he tweeted along with a selfie.
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidelines state that those who have tested positive for coronavirus should self-isolate at home for a minimum of ten days to prevent spreading the infection.
The rockstar was caught defying the health advice after a fan recognized him outside the hotel and recorded the sighting.
He informed his fans last week that he had been sick with ‘flu-like symptoms’ and learned that he was positive on Thursday afternoon.
The band released a statement shortly after, announcing it had to postpone its performance at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania that night in light of the news.

Then on Monday, the ‘I Was Made for Lovin’ You’ star revealed that he was fully recovered – but county rules would require him to continue to isolate.
‘My COVID symptoms were MILD compared to many others and let me tell you… It kicked my a**. It’s over now,’ he said on Twitter.
On Tuesday, KISS announced bassist Gene Simmons had also tested positive with coronavirus, forcing the band to cancel another four shows to allow for his recovery.
This was the same day that legendary rocker Stanley, who is known for painting a star on his face during shows, was spotted walking into the hotel and breaking isolation.
Band statement: About 20 minutes after Stanley’s initial tweet, the band issued a statement on its official Twitter page and website

The statement said: ‘While Paul Stanley recently tweeted that he has recovered from COVID, Gene Simmons has now tested positive and is experiencing mild symptoms.
‘The band and crew will remain at home and isolate for the next 10 days and doctors have indicated the tour should be able to resume on September 9th at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA.’
All members of the band and crew involved in the KISS End of the Road World Tour have been fully vaccinated, the statement said. And Stanley only felt mild symptoms.
