Dave Chappelle has tested positive for COVID-19 and canceled the rest of his Austin shows this week.
Chappelle s currently quarantining after his positive test but has not yet suffered any symptoms according to The Hollywood Reporter. (TMZ broke the news.)
Chappelle’s rep said,
“Dave Chappelle is quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19. His remaining shows at Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, TX have been canceled and ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for refunds.”
“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.”
Chappelle was set to perform five nights at the Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater this week and performed on Wednesday evening. Two of the remaining shows were set to feature Joe Rogan on the bill.
In an Instagram post Rogan apologized, and in another post earlier this week was seen at Stubb’s with Chappelle, Grimes, Elon Musk and others.
