LONDON   -   Lea Michele took to so­cial media to announce she has tested positive for Covid-19 just hours after revealing she was beginning to show ‘early signs and symp­toms of the virus. The Glee star confirmed the news via her Insta­gram Story, adding that ‘production protocols’ will require her to take a temporary absence from Broadway’s Funny Girl. ‘Unfortunately, I have officially tested positive for COVID. In follow­ing production protocols, I cannot return to the theater for 10 days,’ began Michele, who made her debut as Fanny Brice earlier this week. Despite her current health woes, Michele took a moment to gush over nabbing her ‘dream role’ of Fanny Brice and how she’s looking forward to returning to the stage. ‘This week has been a dream come true and I cannot wait to get back -- You better get ready. See you soon,’ concluded Michele, followed by a red heart emoji. She made her Fanny Brice debut just four days ago in the problem-plagued revival of Jule Styne, Bob Merrill, and Isobel Lenn­art’s 1964 musical.
