Inaba revealed the news in a series of Instagram videos, saying, “I just wanted to come on and let you know I just tested positive for COVID-19. So I’m home and I’m following the guidelines… I have a fever and bad cough and lots of aches and pains, and I just wanted to remind you all to stay vigilant because I’m following all the protocols and we have so many strict protocols in place.” Pausing to cough, she continued, “And even then I caught it.”
“The Talk” co-host added, “So just: Friendly reminder to stay vigilant and take care of yourselves and wear masks, please, and wash your hands a lot and just be extra, extra careful, because you don’t want this. Okay?”
Carrie Ann wrote in the caption, “Hey Everyone, I have tested positive for COVID 19. I’m home with some symptoms and will be sequestering as per the CDC guidelines, resting and taking care of myself. I have been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found it’s way to me. So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season… Wear your masks, socially and physically keep your distance, and wash your hands. Take care everyone. And I’ll keep you updated on my journey.”
Inaba is the latest star to test positive. Earlier on Thursday, Ellen DeGeneres also revealed she had been diagnosed with COVID-19.
