Rock, a former “Saturday Night Live” star, is fully vaccinated against the virus, Yahoo News noted.
The comedian’s diagnosis comes amid another wave of COVID-19 infections in the U.S. as the highly contagious delta variant hits the unvaccinated hard.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, 63 percent of Americans have received one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, while 54 percent are fully vaccinated.
President Biden announced earlier this month that all private employers with 100 or more employees would be required to mandate COVID-19 vaccines or weekly testing while also requiring vaccines for federal workers and contractors.
