Reba McEntire said the COVID-19 positive test she received after getting vaccinated was actually wrong and she didn’t have the coronavirus.

“I did say that I had COVID, but when I got tested, my antibodies — it came up that I had not had COVID,” the 66-year-old legendary country singer shared during her appearance on “Talk Shop Live.” The comments were noted by Page Six in a piece published Tuesday.

“I had my antibodies from my vaccine,” she added. “I had all the symptoms. The test … said that I had it, but then the nurse that came and tested me for my antibodies said that I probably had the RSV virus.” (RELATED: It Turns Out Those Plastic Barriers Put Up To Stop COVID-19 May Actually Make It Easier To Spread)

The respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) has similar symptoms to COVID-19 and is a common respiratory virus, the outlet noted. However, it is has no where close to the death rate, People magazine reported.

Earlier this month, the country superstar pleaded with fans to wear a mask after sharing she had contracted the coronavirus while being vaccinated.

“This has been a hard year and it’s getting rougher again,” McEntire shared. “You guys, please stay safe. Wear your mask. Do what you have to do. Stay home.”

“It’s not fun to get [Covid-19],” she added. “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.”
