Four days before, Burke had informed her followers that she’d tested positive for COVID-19. “The PCR test came back, and it came back positive, and I just feel so bad,” she said in a Sept. 26 Instagram video while fighting back tears. “I feel so bad for Cody. I feel like I’m letting him down.”
Because Burke and Rigsby couldn’t be in the ballroom last week, they were judged on their rehearsal performance, earning 24 out of 40 points.
Burke, who is also fully vaccinated, gave her fans an update on how she’s feeling in a video shared to YouTube on Sept. 29. “I go through, like, feeling congested to, like, minor headaches, to now losing my senses,” she said. “I’m just blessed and grateful that I got vaccinated and that I’m fully vaccinated because this probably would have gotten way worse.”
She also sent Rigsby a message on Instagram Stories. “I just want to send my love to Cody,” she noted. “I still feel so terrible about your situation, and our situation and the fact that I obviously gave you COVID. But I’m happy that we’re OK and that you’re OK. Please get some rest.”
Dancing With the Stars airs Monday nights at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC.
