The “Dancing with the Stars” judge and “The Talk” co-host revealed the news in a video on her Instagram Thursday, in which she explained, in between loud coughs, that she is sequestering at home and experiencing symptoms.

“I have been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found its way to me,” Inaba wrote in her caption. “So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season.”

In the video, Inaba said that she has a fever and “bad cough,” as well as “lots of aches and pains.”

Inaba urged her followers to take precautions in order to keep themselves healthy.

“Stay vigilant and take care of yourselves and wear your masks please, and wash your hands a lot and just be extra, extra careful, because you don’t want this,” she added. “I’m going to take care of myself, so you don’t worry about me, OK? Take care, be safe.”

Inaba capped off her post letting her followers know that she will keep them updated on her health.
