Sharon Osbourne Tests Positive For COVID-19, She's Staying Away From Ozzy

The 68-year-old former reality show star revealed that she had to be hospitalized briefly.

Sharon Osbourne recently revealed that she tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The 68-year-old former reality show star shared the news on Monday via an Instagram post. I wanted to share I've tested positive for COVID-19, wrote Osbourne adding that she had to be hospitalized briefly due to it. After a brief hospitalization, I'm now recuperating at a location away from Ozzy (who has tested negative) while The Talk is on scheduled hiatus, it continued. Concluding the post, she wrote: Everyone please stay safe and healthy.



Her fans were quick to flood the comment section with prayers and wishes for her speedy recovery. Oh no 😲 Please take care of yourself. We love you 💖 Get well soon, Mrs. O 😘, expressed one. Praying❤️🙏🏻and sending lots of love and positive thoughts ❤️🙏🏻, shared another. Even The Talk's Twitter account responded to Sharon's news that was posted on the platform. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Mrs. O, we love you (heart emoji), they wrote.


Although Sharon has been relatively healthy in recent times, she's had a tumultuous bout with cancer, reports Entertainment Weekly. At age 49, she was diagnosed with colon cancer. In 2002 she had to undergo surgery to remove a foot of her large intestine and some of it that surrounded the lymph nodes. Following gruelling sessions of chemotherapy, she managed to recover and became cancer-free. Hopefully, she'll be able to come out of this coronavirus battle unscathed as well!


Her decision to recuperate in a location far from her husband Ozzy is wise since the lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath recently suggested that he may not survive if he contracts the virus. During an interview with GQ in November, the musician revealed his respiratory problems and explained, "I’ve got emphysema, so if I get this virus, I’m f*cked." Two months before this, Osbourne shared that her granddaughter had tested positive for the virus.  



The news of Sharon testing positive comes right after her Talk co-host Carrie Ann Inaba contracted the virus, reports PEOPLE. During a broadcast on Thursday, Sheryl Underwood said, "As you can see, Carrie Ann is not here with us today." She continued, "She found out this morning that she tested positive for COVID-19. Obviously, our thoughts are with her, we love her, and we're praying for a full recovery. And, out of an abundance of caution, Mrs. O will be doing the show from home today, even though she tested negative for the coronavirus." Furthermore, she said, "I send all my love and prayers to Carrie Ann." Co-host Eve also shared her concerns saying, "Obviously, [I'm] just concerned. I'm just happy that everyone is okay. Carrie Ann is where she needs to be, and sending her so much good energy and so much good love."



Inaba shared the news on her Instagram handle four days ago. Hey Everyone, I have tested positive for COVID 19, read the post. I’m home with some symptoms and will be sequestering as per the CDC guidelines, resting and taking care of myself. (Swipe to hear the whole video). I have been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found it’s way to me. So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season. Wear your masks, socially and physically keep your distance, and wash your hands. Take care everyone. And I’ll keep you updated on my journey.


In the video, Inaba was heard reminding her followers to "stay vigilant" as she shared, "I'm home, I'm following the guidelines. ... I have a fever, bad cough and lots of aches and pains and I just wanted to remind you all to stay vigilant because I am following all the protocols and have so many strict protocols in place and even then I caught it." She added, "So just a friendly reminder to stay vigilant and take care of yourself. Wear a mask, please, and wash your hands a lot. Just be extra, extra careful, because you don't want this. I'm taking good care of myself, so you don't worry about me. Take care and be safe."
