Comedian Dave Chappelle has tested positive for COVID-19, according to Chappelle was set for a weekend of shows with comedian-podcaster Joe Rogan in Austin, Texas at the Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater, but the shows have now been canceled.
"Dave Chappelle is quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19," a rep for the comedian said in a statement. "Chappelle has safely conducted socially-distanced shows in Ohio since June 2020 and he moved those shows to Austin during the winter. Chappelle implemented COVID-19 protocols which included rapid testing for the audience and daily testing for himself and his team. His diligent testing enabled him to immediately respond by quarantining, thus mitigating the spread of the virus. Chappelle is asymptomatic."
"Because people are asking, I was not exposed to the person who had covid and I have tested negative every day this week," writes Rogan. "Also, the person that gave covid to Dave was NOT Elon's partner @grimes."
