Joseph Maldonado-Passage, better known as "Joe Exotic," has been transferred into self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The star of Netflix’s documentary “Tiger King” is now in a medical center in Fort Worth, Texas, according to prison records found by NBCDFW.

Joe's husband, Dillon Passage, revealed that was placed in isolation after fellow inmates at the jail tested positive for the virus.

Joe is currently serving 22 years in prison for a murder-for-hire scheme on his arch-nemesis Carole Baskin, an animal rights activist, who is also suspect of killing her husband 20 years ago.

He was found guilty of murder-for-hire, nine counts of violating the Endangered Species Act, and eight counts of violating the Lacey Act by falsifying wildlife records.
