There hasn’t been any word if anyone else in the photo tested positive.
Dave isn’t the only comedian who tested positive for COVID-19. During late summer 2020, Kevin Hart admitted that he secretly battled with the novel coronavirus.
The stand-up comedian and Jumanji star finally spoke out about his diagnosis after a full recovery months later.
“The problem is that I had it around the same time as Tom Hanks, and I couldn’t say anything because he’s more famous than I am,” Hart told guests at Dave Chappelle’s An Intimate Socially Distanced Affair show in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
According to the CDC latest regulations, If you’ve been exposed to COVID at an event like a comedy show, you can be around others after:
- 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
- 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
- Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving*
*Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation
Most people do not require testing to decide when they can be around others; however, if your healthcare provider recommends testing, they will let you know when you can resume being around others based on your test results.
Note that these recommendations do not apply to persons with severe COVID-19 or with severely weakened immune systems (immunocompromised).
These persons should follow the guidance below for “I was severely ill with COVID-19 or have a severely weakened immune system (immunocompromised) due to a health condition or medication. When can I be around others?”
