According to Variety, Nyong’o’s positive test also forced the actress to drop out of a planned virtual press day for “The 355”, in which she stars alongside Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Fan Bingbing, and Sebastian Stan.
Nyong’o is just the latest celebrity to test positive for COVID-19. Seth Meyers contracted the disease, which forced “Late Night” taping to be cancelled for the week.
“The View” was also forced to shift to remote production on Monday after Whoopi Goldberg tested positive.
