Derek Hough has tested positive for Covid. The Dancing with the Stars judge announced the news on social media Tuesday.
“even though I’ve been fully vaccinated, I’ve just been diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID,” he said in a video. “I just found out, and I feel OK. I feel strong. I’m currently taking advice from medical professionals, doing everything I can to get better as fast as I can. I’m currently in quarantine. I’ll make sure to keep you guys all updated with what’s going on, but I just want to send a lot of love out there to all. Stay safe.”
Hough has also announced that his Vegas shows will be rescheduled. It is likely that Hough will miss the entire DWTS finale on November 22.
