Cheryl Burke Reveals She is COVID-19 Positive

Cheryl Burke was emotional as she revealed to fans that she has tested positive for COVID-19.

The 37-year-old dancer made the announcement of her diagnosis through Instagram, shortly before her supposed performance with Cody Rigsby on ‘Dancing With the Stars‘.

Cheryl was in tears while she explained: “The PCR test came back, and it came back positive.” She added she has received the Moderna vaccine. 

“I feel so bad for Cody. I feel like I’m letting him down. I just feel like s***, to be quite honest. And it’s so overwhelming because it’s Sunday, and the show’s tomorrow.”

Cheryl will need to do a 10-day quarantine period, and the dancer is hoping that she hasn’t spread the virus to anyone else among the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ cast and crew. 

In a video message, she said: “I figured I should let you guys know since I’ve been as open and as real and vulnerable as I could be here.

“I just hope I didn’t spread it. For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f****** real, dude. So I have to quarantine for 10 days and I’ve been ordered to stay home … I’ll be in bed. I can’t believe this happened.”

Cheryl and Cody made their debut last week as partners on the DWTS dance floor, dancing the tango to ‘Physical’ by Dua Lipa. They got a score of 24 out of 40 from the judges.

Cheryl also thanked her social media followers at the time for their support.

She wrote on Instagram: “So excited to finally reveal my partner @codyrigsby!! Tonight was unreal, thank you guys for all of the support – we are just getting started and we can’t do it without our #boocrew! (sic)”
