Céline Dion has delayed concerts in Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this week after being tested for COVID-19.

Taking to Facebook, the Canadian singer's team revealed: "On Monday night, a day after completing a six-show run in the New York area, Céline began feeling the symptoms of a common cold.

"The symptoms persisted into Tuesday, and her doctors instructed her to rest for the next 5-7 days.

"After testing her, the doctors concluded that her virus was not related to COVID-19."
