Chesca Tests Positive for COVID-19 After Attending Recording Session

Chesca has tested positive for COVID-19 after attending a recording session in Miami.

The Puerto Rican singer took to her Instagram Stories on Saturday (Jan. 16) to share a screenshot of her test results and explain how she caught the virus.

“I went to the studio where one of the producers who was there felt sick,” she wrote in Spanish. “I asked him if it was COVID and he said no, that he was hungover. It was COVID and unfortunately it spread to all of us who were there.”

Chesca also posted an image of her positive test results from a testing site in Miami-Dade County, adding a “#F—COVID” hashtag and sad face emoji across the screenshot.

“Luckily none of us are experiencing bad symptoms and feel OK,” the singer told TMZ. “I have mild to zero symptoms and I feel good just a bit of body aches.”

Despite her illness, Chesca says she will still give a socially distanced performance as part of President-elect Joe Biden’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration on Monday (Jan. 18).

Other artists performing during the hour-long commemoration — titled United We Serve: A Celebration of the National MLK Day of Service — include Aloe Blacc, Andra Day, Yo-Yo Ma, Diane Warren and BeBe Winans.

The special airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET on bideninagural.org.
