Reba Says She and Boyfriend Rex Linn Caught COVID Despite Being Vaccinated

Reba McEntire and her boyfriend both caught COVID-19 despite being vaccinated. The 66-year-old country music star and her partner, Rex Linn, both tested positive for the virus recently despite being fully vaccinated, and Reba is now urging people to continue to “stay safe” regardless of whether they’ve had their vaccine.

She said in a recent TikTok live stream: “I just want to say one thing: this has been a hard year and it’s getting rougher again. You guys, please stay safe. Wear your mask. Do what you have to do. Stay home.

“It’s not fun to get this. I did get it. Rex and I got it and it’s not fun. You don’t feel good. We were both vaccinated and we still got it, so stay safe, stay home, and be protected the best you can.”

She added: “I have no idea what plans for next year are. You know, the COVID thing has really hit hard and spikes are going everywhere right now … and it’s all over the country — this new variant.

“We have plans right now to go back on tour in January, February, and March. We have plans with being with Brooks & Dunn at Caesars in December — the first two weeks, almost three weeks of December — but we don’t know if that’s going to go.

“We’re just gonna move forward, keep praying that everybody stays safe and healthy, and wear your mask and just be safe.”
