Sharon Osbourne announces she tested positive for COVID-19
Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 days after “The Talk” co-host Carrie Ann Inaba said she too had the virus.
In a Monday night Instagram post, the 68-year-old said she spent some time in the hospital with the illness, but is recovering, away from her husband, Ozzy Osbourne.
She wrote: “I wanted to share I’ve tested positive for Covid 19, 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.”
Inaba, who previously posted about her own diagnosis, was among those to wish Osbourne well.
“Love you so much my friend,” she wrote. “Sending you so much love…and praying for a full recovery.”
Inaba, 52, wrote Thursday that she was “home with some symptoms and will be sequestering as per the CDC guidelines, resting and taking care of myself.”
Inaba missed the regularly scheduled taping for “The Talk” last week, as did Osbourne, who was shooting from home “out of an abundance of caution,” according to co-host Sheryl Underwood.
Osbourne’s other well-wishers included Nicole Scherzinger, who wrote, “Praying for you and love you,” and famed interior designer Martyn Bullard, who posted, “OmG! Stay safe and gods speed to a full recovery.”
Osbourne previously quarantined back in September after son Jack Osbourne’s 3-year-old daughter tested positive for the virus.
She said the tot contracted the illness “from somebody who works for my son and it just goes to show you, she’s three years of age, that children can get COVID.”
