I wanted to share I’ve tested positive for Covid 19. 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.

Osbourne’s announcement comes after fellow “The Talk” cohost Carrie Ann Inaba revealed that she had tested positive for COVID-19 last week. Inaba said in an Instagram post that she was experiencing “some symptoms.” “I have a fever and bad cough and lots of aches and pains,” she said in a series of videos.
Inaba missed the regularly scheduled taping for “The Talk” last week while Osbourne was not on set “out of an abundance of caution,” cohost Sheryl Underwood said at the time. Instead, Osbourne taped the show from home.
“The Talk” has wrapped production for the year.
