FEELING FINE

Moore earlier revealed that he tested positive for the dreaded coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which he initially mistook for food poisoning. But he said he was feeling fine already.

He also sported a black cap with the letter "P" in yellow printed in front and matching yellow sneakers. In the caption, he said he would not let COVID-19 "[shut] down my swag."

He added a hashtag, urging everyone to wear a mask when in public, including when they're out in the streets. More than 155,000 fans liked his post in just five hours.

Many of his loyal followers expressed their concern and well-wishes in the comment box. One fan encouraged him to "hang in there" while another wished him "a healthy recovery."

Moore has been vocal about his adoration for his mother, whom he also considered his best friend.

A CHALLENGING YEAR

Despite his loss and his latest challenge with COVID-19, Moore still has many things to be thankful for, not least of which is his $5.8-million mansion in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles.

The "Criminal Minds" actor's new ultra-modern villa boasts of seven bedrooms and a state-of-the-art home automation system and security apparatus. The 9,000-square-foot property also features a poolside pavilion.

Moore has come a long way as an actor who first drew massive attention when he played Malcolm Winters on "The Young & The Restless" from 1994 to 2005. The roled earned him a coveted Emmy Award.

He then played Derek Morgan on the hit series "Criminal Minds" from 2005 to 2016, a role that earned him a People's Choice Award nomination. After leaving "Criminal Minds," he now plays the lead role in "S.W.A.T."
