A message posted to Prine's Twitter account revealed the news Sunday evening. "After a sudden onset of COVID-19 symptoms, John was hospitalized on Thursday (3/26)," the message read. 

"He was intubated Saturday evening, and continues to receive care, but his situation is critical," Prine's family said.
