Another celebrity has unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19, and this time it's Lupita Nyong'o.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, the Oscar winner announced, "I too have tested positive for COVID-19. I'm fully vaccinated and taking care in isolation, so I trust I will be well."

"Please do all you can to keep yourself and others protected from serious illness. #StayMaskedAndVaxxed," Nyong'o concluded. 

Lupita's diagnosis and consequent isolation forced her to drop out of virtual interviews for her upcoming film The 355, where she was set to join co-stars Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Fan Bingbing, Sebasitan Stan and director Simon Kinber to promote the spy film.

The 355 hits theaters this Friday.
