Peloton star Cody Rigsby has tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time after his Dancing with the Stars partner Cheryl Burke contracted the virus.

Rigsby, 34, shared he had breakthrough COVID in an Instagram video Thursday, admitting it was news he didn't "want to be sharing."

"I have tested positive for COVID again, the second time this year," he began, adding that his symptoms — which include mild congestion, headache and cough — are not as bad as when he had the virus back in February before he was vaccinated.

"So that must be the vaccine antibodies working," he said. "So we're super grateful for that."
