Sharon Osbourne, 68-year-old talk show host, posted on her official Instagram that she has tested positive for COVID-19.

"I wanted to share I've tested positive for COVID-19," her Instagram post read. "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. Everyone please stay safe and healthy."

The news shortly followed her fellow “The Talk” co-host Carrie Ann Inaba’s revelation of contracting the virus.

Osbourne quarantined in September, appearing on her show through video link after claiming one of her young granddaughters tested positive for COVID-19.

Osbourne survived colon cancer and her husband, rocker Ozzy Osbourne, is a patient of Parkinson's disease.

In March, their daughter Kelly Osbourne voiced her concern for their health during the pandemic.

"I wish there was something I could say to comfort you all. Some wisdom I could drop on you to relive you from the fear that surrounds us all right now," Kelly wrote on Instagram. "The truth is I am scared too. Both of my parents are high risk especially my dad."
