Talk show host Stephen Colbert has caught COVID for the second time in the space of three weeks after previously thanking the efficacy of the vaccine when he contracted the virus last month.
The Late Show frontman previously caught COVID on April 21 and was forced to cancel that night’s taping before taking a week off.
The show returned on May 2 with new episodes, although production has been paused again following news of Colbert suffering a “recurrence” of COVID-19.
“Stephen is experiencing symptoms consistent with a recurrence of COVID,” tweeted the official The Late Show account. “Out of an abundance of caution for his staff, guests, and audience, he will be isolating for a few additional days,” the tweet added. “The Late Show will not be taping new episodes until further notice.”
