Lisa is among many celebrities who have faced coronavirus diagnoses since the pandemic first emerged. Most recently, Dancing With the Stars judge Derek Hough revealed he was diagnosed with COVID-19. "I have some news to share and I wanted you to hear it straight from me," Derek said in an Instagram video posted on Nov. 16. "Even though I've been fully vaccinated, I've just been diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID."

He elaborated, "I feel okay. I feel strong, but I'm currently taking advice from medical professionals, doing everything I can to get better as fast as I can. I'm currently in quarantine and I'll make sure I keep you guys all updated with what's going on, but I just wanted to send a lot of love out there to all."
