‘Dancing with the Stars’ Cheryl Burke and Cody Rigsby have reunited in the studio after testing positive for COVID-19.
The 37-year-old professional dancer and 34-year-old fitness trainer Peloton had to miss the show last week after they both tested positive for coronavirus.
The couple had to quarantine themselves and that meant that the judges had to criticize the images of a rehearsal of their salsa, for which they received a score of 24 out of 40 points.
However, they are now back together preparing for the next show tonight (11.10.21).
Cheryl wrote on Instagram along with a snapshot and video of them in the dance studio: “Reunited and it feels so good! @codyrigsby #boocrew #dwts # dwts30 “.
The choreographer, who had received the Moderna vaccine, admitted that she was “shocked” to see a positive result.
She shared: “I had no idea that I actually had COVID.
“I started to feel like maybe I was getting sick like the flu or maybe I was totally exhausted from traveling or whatever, or from lack of sleep, but I never thought it was going to be COVID.
“Obviously, when I took the test and it was positive, I was surprised. And sad, because I knew that it would not be possible for me to dance, for sure.”
Cody, who tested positive days after Cheryl, admitted that he was more concerned about the well-being of his dance partner than anything else.
He said at the time: “I had COVID in late January / early February, and this was obviously before the vaccine, so I know how hard it hits me. And I had a really bad case.
“I was just worried about Cheryl, because even though she’s young and healthy, no one knows how this virus affects anyone. So I just wanted to make sure she was okay.”
