All The Celebrities Who Have Tested Positive For Coronavirus

With over 77.6 million cases of coronavirus worldwide, celebrities and civilians alike have been impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

From Emmanuel Macron to Sharon Osbourne to Uncle Luke, stars and public figures from around the world have helped put a face to the international health crisis by sharing their diagnoses.

Here’s a roundup of celebrities who have announced that they have the coronavirus. (UPDATED 12/22) 

Emmanuel Macron

The President of France tested positive for coronavirus after exhibiting multiple symptoms, the country's presidential palace announced on December 17.

“I am doing well,” the 42-year-old French leader said in a self-shot video. “Normally, there is no reason for it to evolve in a bad way.” 

He added that his infection “shows that the virus really can touch everyone, because I am very protected and am very careful… Despite everything I caught this virus — perhaps, doubtless, a moment of negligence, a moment of bad luck, too.”

Uncle Luke

In a December 16 editorial published by the Miami New Times, the 60-year-old musician announced that he contracted COVID-19 after attending a party.

"I told myself I would go in for 15 minutes and duck out. As soon as I walked through the doors, it was like stepping into a coronavirus-spreading chamber," he wrote. "Everybody was wildin' out and getting drunk. Almost no one was wearing masks. My buddies were all up in my face. Patrons and strippers were walking up to me and asking to take selfies. Of course, I obliged when they asked me to take my mask off. Even though I felt like everyone in the club was an asymptomatic carrier, I stayed late."

"A few days later, I started having a dry cough. I chalked it up to seasonal allergies," Luke continued. "When I lost my appetite, I told myself it was probably a stomach virus. I didn't want to believe I had COVID-19. When I lost my sense of smell and taste, I knew I had to get tested. I called a home testing service to come by and give me a rapid swab test. I was first told the result was positive, then informed it was a false positive when they called me a few hours later."

Sharon Osbourne

“I wanted to share I’ve tested positive for Covid 19,” the 68-year-old Talk cohost announced via Twitter on December 14. “After a brief hospitalization, I’m now recuperating at a location away from [my husband] Ozzy (who has tested negative) while The Talk is on scheduled hiatus. Everyone please stay safe and healthy.”

"Hey y'all I can't believe I'm saying this but I tested positive for COVID-19," Ashanti wrote on Instagram. "I'm ok and not in any pain. I'm actually down to do the verzuz from my house… we're trying to figure it out!!!" 

The event was ultimately pushed back to January 9, 2021.

On December 10, the 60-year-old comedian and host announced that she’d tested positive for COVID-19. “Fortunately, I am feeling fine right now,” she wrote on Instagram. “Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified and I am following all proper CDC guidelines.” 

Ellen added, “I’ll see you guys again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”

Dorit Kemsley

The 44-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star announced via Instagram Story on December 10 that she tested positive for COVID-19.

“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,” she added. “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.”

She added, “Sending love to everyone in these crazy times. Stay safe and healthy.”

JoJo Siwa

In an interview that was published on December 3, the 17-year-old dancer and singer told Entertainment Tonight that she and her family all tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the holidays. 

"I did end up getting it, the big, dreaded COVID-19. It got through my whole family," JoJo shared. "We had headaches, we were tired, we had shortness of breath, we had all the things. All my family actually lost their taste and smell, but all have it back. But I never did."

Gloria Estefan

On December 2, the 63-year-old singer announced that she tested positive after having a mask-less encounter with a fan. "In the past few weeks I have been one of the victims of COVID. October 30 was the only time I ever went out. The reason I'm sharing this is I want you to know how highly contagious this is. I wear my mask everywhere," Gloria explained. "I went to a restaurant outdoors with some family, four of us. Everybody was negative and we wore masks all the way to the table and when we left."

"The only thing I can imagine happening is that someone came up to me when I was eating and tapped me on the shoulder," she continued. "They were very close. They had no mask. They were telling me beautiful things. But that's the only thing I have done outside my enclosure here, my quarantine, [and] my studio, everyone there is negative as well."

Rosie Perez

In an interview with Uproxx that was published on November 30, the 56-year-old actress revealed that she contracted the coronavirus while traveling last December to shoot her new HBO series The Flight Attendant.

“At that time, they were saying it’s a new respiratory tract infection. It’s a virus that’s going around. We don’t really know what it is and what it does, but it attacks the respiratory system first and then travels to other parts of your body,” Rosie shared.

“And I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was terrifying,” she continued. “I remember my manager was with me, and I said, ‘Tarik, don’t let me die in Bangkok.’ And he goes, ‘Oh my God, you’re scaring me.’ And the head of the ICU says, ‘You should be scared, sir. This is serious. We’re going to have to put her in a separate room.'”

Rosie added, “I remember the doctor saying to me, ‘The mask that you have on, the mask that I have on, every time you go outside, every time you meet someone wear that mask — not just for you, but to protect them too.’ And I haven’t forgotten it.”

Lewis Hamilton

On December 1, the seven-time Formula One champion announced that he’d contracted COVID-19. 

"Hi guys. I'm devastated that I won't be racing this weekend," the 35-year-old wrote on Instagram. "Since we started the season in June, my team and I have been taking all the precautions we possibly can and following the regulations everywhere we've been in order to stay safe."

He added, "Unfortunately, even though I returned three negative results this past week, I woke up yesterday morning with mild symptoms and requested another test which came back positive. I've immediately gone into self-isolation for ten days. I'm gutted not to be able to race the weekend but my priority is to follow the protocols and advice to protect others."

A night after canceling his performance at the American Music Awards, a representative for the 26-year-old reggaeton artist announced that he’d tested positive for COVID-19.

LOML @therichardschiff is now in the hospital on oxygen and remdesivir. Thank you all of you for the prayers and love. We feel them. He's doing better. Getting stronger."

She added, "My son and I are still riding this strange covid coaster up and then down and all around. [...] I have never experienced anything like this before in my life. One minute I'm feeling pretty good and the next I'm struggling to breathe. What I do know is if you get this virus the relationship between you and your body is everything."


On November 14, TMZ reported that the 33-year-old R&B singer had been placed on a ventilator in ICU after contracting coronavirus.

"Jeremih is currently battling severe COVID-19 health complications. He’s in the ICU on a ventilator to help him breathe. The COVID-19 condition he’s experiencing is rare for a young man his age without underlying conditions," the singer's family wrote in a statement.

"It started as just a very strange syndrome where I kept breaking into a terrible sweat. It was like a poncho of sweat, embarrassing really," he recalled. "Then my eyeballs felt about three sizes too big and this feeling as though some enormous man was sitting on my chest, sort of Harvey Weinstein or someone."

Hugh added, "I thought, 'I don't know what this is,' and then I was walking down the street one day and I though, 'I can't smell a damn thing,' and you start to panic.”

She continued, “I had to go and change Kanye’s sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”

The veteran E! host revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 while announcing that she was pulling out of E's Live From the Red Carpet Emmy's pre-show because of her diagnosis. 

"Hey, everyone. As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately this year is just so different," Rancic said in a statement ahead of the pre-show on September 20. "As part of E! and NBCUniversal's very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19.

Giuliana said that her husband Bill and son Duke also tested positive and have been recovering at home.

"We feel great [now]," Harris said before sharing the coronavirus symptoms he and his family experienced. "It happened very early (in the pandemic), like late March, early April. We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn't want to be paranoid about it. And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up."

Jillian Michaels

The 49-year-old fitness trainer recently revealed she contracted COVID-19 "several weeks ago.”

“I’m fortunate to have gone into it being healthy and I was able to get on the other side of it pretty quick, but not everyone is that lucky as we know," she continued. "All I can tell you is if you are afraid of getting COVID, a public gym is probably a place where you will get it."

Tiffany Haddish

In a conversation with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the 40-year-old comedian and actress revealed that she tested positive for coronavirus earlier this year. 

“I was working on a movie and someone in the movie contracted coronavirus,” Haddish told Fauci in a video posted on her YouTube page on August 31. “I was not in direct contact with them, but they sent all of us home, we stopped the movie. They suggested I go get tested. I got tested, got the results back two days later, they said I didn’t have the coronavirus.”

Haddish said she got tested again when someone else she knew tested positive. “Get the tests the second time. I’m not feeling any symptoms or anything, and it comes back like two days later, and they said I did have the coronavirus,” she shared.

While Haddis said she didn’t exhibit any symptoms, she remained in quarantine with her dogs. “Then I went and tested again, didn’t have the virus, and then I got tested for antibodies, they said I had antibodies,” she explained. “That was three months ago, I’ve been tested 12 times now because I’ve been working and everything.” 

David and Victoria Beckham

According to The Sun, the Beckhams reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 back in March.

“They attended a couple of swanky networking events [in Miami] as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries. They then flew back to London, and were whisked straight to their Cotswolds mansion,” an anonymous friend of the couple told the outlet. 

The soccer star and fashion designer then celebrated their eldest son Brooklyn's 21st birthday in the UK before returning to Miami again where they reportedly started to come down with coronavirus symptoms.

“It was an absolute nightmare scenario,” the source continued. “David started to feel ill and then Victoria developed a sore throat and high temperature. At the same time, several of their team including drivers, bodyguards and assistants fell ill—a couple of them very badly so. Victoria really panicked and made the whole family quarantine rigidly for more than two weeks. She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimize all future risk. Not only was she poorly in bed, she was also completely panicked. It was a rough few weeks.”

Robert Pattinson

The 34-year-old actor tested positive for the novel coronavirus after returning to film The Batman at studios outside of London, according to Vanity Fair.

So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19," the 48-year-old actor and former wrestler shared in an 11-minute Instagram clip.

"Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries or being evicted or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times,"he added. "The reason why I feel this is different is because my number one priority is to always protect my family and protect my children, my loved ones."


According to multiple outlets, the Brazilian soccer star is one of multiple Paris Saint-Germain players to have tested positive for COVID-19.

“Three players are confirmed positive after a Sars CoV2 test and have undergone the appropriate health protocols. All players and staff will continue to be tested over the next few days,” PSG announced in a press release on September 2.

On August 26, the actor announced that he'd recovered from COVID-19 after isolating since he was diagnosed. “After 21 days of disciplinary confinement I can say now that today I overcame the Covid 19 infection.

It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom.”

“At the very end of march I took two covid19 tests and both were negative,” she continued. “I also took a covid antibody test (the finger prick test) after I was feeling a bit better. NEGATIVE. After living the last 4 months with lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise, I went and got an antibody test from a blood draw (not the finger prick) from a lab. I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19.”

Alyssa concluded, “I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers. I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying. I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.).”

Anna Camp

On July 21, the Pitch Perfect star shared on Instagram that she believes she contracted the coronavirus after not wearing a mask in public one time.

“I felt it was my responsibility to share that I ended up getting Covid-19,” Anna wrote. “I have since tested negative, but I was extremely sick for over three weeks and still have lingering symptoms. I was incredibly safe. I wore a mask. I used hand sanitizer. One time, when the world was starting to open up, I decided to forgo wearing my mask in public. One. Time. And I ended up getting it. I believe it may have been because of that one time.”

She went on to detail her symptoms, writing, “People are saying it’s like having the flu, but I’ve had the flu, and this is absolutely not that. The panic of contracting a virus that is basically untreatable and is so new that no one knows the long term irreparable damage it does to your immune system is unbelievably stressful. Completely losing my sense of smell and taste without knowing when or even if they will return is extremely disorienting. I’m only smelling about 30 percent of how I used to now. Other persistent symptoms are (a month later) dizziness, extreme fatigue, impacted sinuses, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, and fever.”

Anna continued, “I’m lucky. Because I didn’t die. But people are. Please wear ur mask. It can happen any time. And it can happen to anyone. Even that one time you feel safe. We can all make a difference. Wearing a mask is saving lives.”

In the face of so much death, they celebrate their triumphs.”
