Comedian Dave Chappelle has tested positive for Covid-19 but is asymptomatic, according to a statement from his spokeswoman obtained by CNN.

“Dave Chappelle is quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19. His remaining shows at Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, TX have been canceled,” Carla Sims, Chappelle’s representative, said in the statement.

“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,” the statement continued.

The website for the venue Chappelle was set to perform at with fellow comedian, Joe Rogan, shows his upcoming performances as canceled.

Rogan posted a news site’s headline saying Chappelle had tested positive for Covid-19 to his verified Instagram account and commented, “Sorry my friends, the Friday and Saturday shows at @stubbsaustin have been cancelled.”
