Celine Dion is not the last celebrity to be tested for the coronavirus after she developed cold symptoms that made her fear she might have contracted a terminal illness
Celine Dion, 51, tested negative for coronavirus in her body! The legendary singer was tested for illness after showing symptoms of a cold, but luckily her diagnosis turned out to be a simple cold. “On Monday night, the day after the completion of the six-party performance in the New York area, Celine Dion began to feel symptoms of a cold,” the singer said on her Facebook page. “The symptoms persisted until Tuesday, and the doctors recommended that she rest for the next 5-7 days. After checking, the doctors concluded that her virus was not related to COVID-19.”
However, Celine Dion will still be resting in bed for the next few days to restore her health, which means for her fans that she has had to cancel two upcoming shows on her COURAGE world tour. Her performance on Wednesday March 11 at the Capital One Aren in Washington DC has been pushed back to November 16, 2020, and her performance on Friday March 13 in Pittsburgh, PA at PPG Paints Aren has been pushed back to November 18, 2020. … “I apologize most sincerely for the disappointment of my fans for the canceled shows in Washington DC and Pittsburgh!” Celine said in a statement. "I hope everyone understands." Following the cancellation of these two concerts, Celine will have nearly two weeks off before her tour resumes March 24 in Denver, Colorado.
As the number of reported cases of coronavirus in the United States rises, celebrities are taking serious precautions to protect their health. While many have long worn masks while traveling on airplanes, some have canceled concerts as well. The Coachell Music Festival has even been postponed until October - an unprecedented event!
