Just days after his Dancing With the Stars pro partner Cheryl Burke reveals she tested positive for COVID-19, Cody Rigsby revealed he has tested positive as well, for the second time this year.

The 34-year-old Peleton instructor took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal he tested positive, despite being fully vaccinated, like his partner Burke was.

He revealed that he will be ‘taking a break in the coming days’ from the competition, though it’s unclear what that will mean for the production.

‘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,’ Rigsby said in the caption of his post.

‘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,’ he added.

The post came with a video where he revealed the news to his 933K followers, adding it’s ‘news I don’t want to be sharing.’

‘I have tested positive for COVID… again, the second time this year,’ Rigsby began, though it’s not as bad as the first time around.

‘I right now have really mild symptoms, congestion, a little bit of a headache, cough, but in comparison to when I had COVID earlier this year, it’s night and day,’ he continued, adding that it, ‘must be the vaccine and antibodies working.’

‘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,’ he added.

He also clarified that he showered and did his hair for this video, ‘because ain’t no way you’re plastering this video all over the net and I look a busted mess.’

I’m gonna go eat all the yummy food that I can right now, as I still have my taste buds. I will chat with you soon. Bye boos,’ he concluded.

Rigsby’s partner Cheryl Burke revealed on Sunday that she tested positive for COVID, and she was also fully vaccinated as well.

Both Burke and Rigsby were not in the studio together for Monday night’s episode, due to Burke’s COVID case, though they still participated in the show.

They both spoke through video conferencing with the panel judging footage from their rehearsals, instead of their live performance.

They earned a 24 of 40 possible points on their salsa dance routine on Monday night’s episode.
