His band, Dead and Company, shared the news on Instagram on Wednesday and also announced that they would be cancelling an upcoming event in Mexico.

“Today, just prior to leaving for Mexico, per his physician, @JohnMayer tested positive for COVID-19 and will be unable to perform at the upcoming “Playing in the Sand” event in Riviera Cancun January 7-10,” the post read.

Whoopi Goldberg, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers all revealed in January that they had also tested positive for Covid-19.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” host revealed on Instagram on Monday that during his holiday break, he tested positive for Covid-19, also sharing that his symptoms were mild.

“Hey guys, on the first day of our holiday break I tested positive for Covid. I was vaccinated and boostered which made me lucky enough to only have mild symptoms,” he shared. “Thank you to the doctors and nurses who work so hard around the clock to get everyone vaxxed. Thank you to NBC for taking the testing protocols so seriously and doing a great job – and also thanks for putting me in the ‘What ‘chu talkin’ about Willis?’ isolation room when they told me the news.”

Reese Witherspoon wished him well in the comments writing, “Hope you had a speedy recovery!”

Jimmy isn’t the only television personality to have tested positive for the virus.

“The View’s” Whoopi Goldberg has tested positive. Her co-host revealed the news on Monday’s episode of the daytime talk show, sharing that Whoopi’s symptoms have been mild.

“Why am I here instead of Whoopi? Well, Whoopi, unfortunately, tested positive over the break but she’ll be back probably next week. Since she’s vaxxed and boosted, her symptoms have been very, very, mild. But we’re being super cautious here at The View,” Joy stated on the show.
