Osbourne, 68, who co-hosts “The Talk” on CBS, took to Instagram on Monday to share the news with her followers, revealing that she underwent a short hospitalization and is now isolating from her 72-year-old husband, rock icon Ozzy Osbourne.
“I wanted to share that I’ve tested positive for Covid 19,” she wrote. “After a brief hospitalization, I’m now recuperating at a location away from Ozzy (who has tested negative) while The Talk is on scheduled hiatus. Everyone please stay safe and healthy.”
Osbourne isn’t the only “Talk” host battling COVID-19. Carrie Ann Inaba, who is a judge on “Dancing with the Stars” in addition to her “Talk” duties, announced on Dec. 10 that she tested positive for the virus.
“Love you so much my friend,” Inaba wrote to Osbourne on Instagram. “Sending you so much love… and praying for a full recovery.”
Disclosing her own diagnosis days prior, Inaba said on Instagram she has “been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found its way to me. So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season.”
In an Instagram video, Inaba said that she had a fever and “bad cough,” as well as “lots of aches and pains and urged her followers to take precautions in order to keep themselves healthy.
“Stay vigilant and take care of yourselves and wear your masks please, and wash your hands a lot and just be extra, extra careful, because you don’t want this,” she added. “I’m going to take care of myself, so you don’t worry about me, OK? Take care, be safe.”
Inaba capped off her post letting her followers know that she will keep them updated on her health.
