She posted an Instagram video explaining her situation with the caption: “Hey Everyone, I have tested positive for COVID 19. 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).”
She added, “I have been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found it’s way to me.

The season finale of Dancing with the Stars aired on November 23. The 29th season was full of shock and awe, with Inaba’s diagnosis the latest headline in a season filled with surprises. For starters, longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were let go at the last minute in favor of solo host Tyra Banks. She has been a controversial host even though ratings increased under her watch (she’s also the executive producer).
Also pro dancer Derek Hough returned, but as a judge this time around, and the most talked about dance couple wasn’t the one that won the Mirrorball trophy!

Carrie Ann Inaba was diagnosed with COVID more than two weeks after the DWTS finale
That honor went to Selling Sunset star and Days of our Lives alum Chrishell Stause and pro dancer Gleb Savchenko. That’s because immediately after they were eliminated from the competition Gleb announced his separation from his wife on social media, she turned around and accused him of recent cheating, and Chrishell felt the need to announce to the world that she’s no home wrecker. Yikes.
The story has a happy ending however as soon afterward Chrishell declared that she is dating Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Keo Motsepe which led beleaguered Gleb to comment on one of Motsepe’s posts: “❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love you guys!!!”
Inaba received many supportive comments following her announcement. Fellow dancer Amanda Kloots, who lost her husband, Broadway star Nick Cordero, to COVID-19 this summer wrote: “Oh Carrie Ann! Sending you only love and prayers.”
