Amell stated that he was always "really good at" wearing a mask and being socially distant.

The actor said the pressure came from knowing he had to stop working and put the many people working on the set of his show in trouble if he tested positive. Amell is the star and when he's not there he stops everyone else.

With the COVID-19 issue, Amell was hoping he was clear before testing positive. He had tested negative more than 40 times. When that happened he was quarantined for three weeks.

"If this hadn't been called COVID-19, I wouldn't have missed a work day," said the self-described "retired superhero". "I would have felt crap in a few days, but I … wouldn't have missed a work day … I went to work and felt worse than than … but then … Anything you deal with is … the flu that makes you feel really shabby, or got injured by a stunt or something. "

I still don't think it wasn't for the 39-year-old as he said his first few days with it were "just sucked".
