Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby revealed he tested positive for breakthrough Covid-19, days after his “Dancing with the Stars” partner Cheryl Burke announced her diagnosis.
” “I have some bad news to share with you, but here it is,” Rigsby stated in an Instagram video.
The instructor, 34, had the infection earlier this year prior to being vaccinated and said battling Covid-19 then and now is “night and day. He said that he has mild symptoms right now, including congestion, headaches, and cough. “So that must be the vaccine and the antibodies working so we’re super grateful for that.”
Earlier this week, Burke shared an emotional Instagram video announcing that she had tested positive despite being fully vaccinated. In an Instagram Story, Burke said that she was sorry for exposing Rigsby the virus.
” I still feel terrible about giving Rigsby Covid, but I’m glad that you’re okay and that we’re both OK. She said, “Please get some sleep.”
Burke received a positive test the day before the live taping of Monday’s dance competition television program. Final scores were given by the judges to the pair based on their rehearsal performance video.
Rigsby said in his video on Thursday that he’s not sure what will happen for the rest of the show. Burke also posted a YouTube video telling fans that she was trying to figure out how she and Rigsby can still compete.
“At the end of the day, Cody and I have only danced one dance or two dances together really. It’s almost as if I would still be considered his partner. She said, “It’s all like it all sucks.” “I love my partner, we had so much fun together. He is an incredible and talented artist and dancer, and Britney [Spears], week means that I would love to dance with him. While I am not saying that I am not, there is still a chance. However, I doubt it will happen. “
