'DWTS' Contestant Cody Rigsby Tests Positive for COVID-19, Talks Future on the Show

Cody Rigsby has tested positive for COVID-19, days after his Dancing With the Stars partner Cheryl Burke also tested positive for the virus.

“Hi friends, I wanted to check in with you to share some news. While I am fully vaccinated and took many precautions, following CDC guidelines, I recently tested positive for COVID19. To properly rest and recover as well as avoid exposing others, I will be taking a break in the coming days. I appreciate all your support and I’ll be back as soon as I am ready,” Cody wrote on his Instagram account on Thursday (September 30).

In the video, Cody notes that he has tested positive for COVID “again.” For those who don’t know, he previously battled the virus back in February.

“Right now I have really mild symptoms. Congestion, a little bit of a headache, a cough. But in comparison to when I had COVID earlier this year, it’s night and day, so that must be the vaccine and the antibodies working, so we’re super grateful for that,” Cody said in the video.

He added, “As far as my fate on Dancing With the Stars, we are still trying to figure that out right now, so please be patient with that answer.”
