Sharon Osbourne has contracted COVID-19. The host of “The Talk” revealed that she was recently hospitalized due to the virus. But she promises fans she’s now on the mend.

The Brit is one of several high profile celebrities to contract the virus since the pandemic began. Recently, country music legend Charley Pride passed away from complications related to the virus. “Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson also had her own stint in the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19.

On Instagram, Osbourne wanted to assure her followers that she’s okay. She also revealed that her husband Ozzy Osbourne tested negative for the virus.

“I wanted to share I’ve tested positive for covid-19,” Osbourne wrote on Instagram. “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.”

Osbourne’s diagnosis and hospitalization come after fellow “The Talk” host Carrie Ann Inaba also tested positive for the virus. Less than a week ago, Inaba publicly revealed she was at home quarantining with the virus and had experienced related symptoms.

Sharon Osbourne on Her Husband Ozzy’s Health

Ozzy Osbourne is considered at-risk for the virus. The rock star has had a bit of a rough 2020 so far after revealing his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis in January. Sharon discussed the difficulties of her husband’s band with Parkinson’s amid a global pandemic.

“He’s doing great. He’s doing really, really good,” Sharon Osbourne told Dr. Oz. “Unfortunately, at the beginning of lockdown, he couldn’t have his physiotherapy and he was like, four months without any physiotherapy, which kind of set him back a bit. But now he’s back at it, five days a week again, and he’s doing really well, very well,” 

But that’s not the only affliction Ozzy Osbourne has faced. He’s also injured his neck from a fall as well as had pneumonia and a hand infection.

“If I had a choice between the Parkinson’s and the f— neck, I’d go for the Parkinson’s. I’ve been laid up for a year now,” Ozzy told The Sun earlier this year. “First I had an infection in my hand — that pulled me off the road — then I got pneumonia, then I had the fall, then I had surgery and here I am today. It’s driving me nuts.”

Despite the setbacks, Ozzy Osbourne tries to remain in good spirits and has been spending time with family. For instance, he hasn’t let the year ruin his Christmas spirit.
