The statement noted that to allow the 57-year-old time to quarantine and fully recover, they need to ensure that production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA COVID-19 protocols.

Therefore, they need to push the expected launch of the 13th season of the TV show to Monday, October 4, 2021. In the meantime, repeats will be scheduled.

Breakthrough cases are COVID-19 infections that occur on people who have been fully vaccinated against the virus and are considered rare.

However, they are not entirely impossible as they are also anticipated seeing vaccines are not 100 percent effective in preventing infections.

Studies have proven the effectiveness of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines declined in New York, where Williams resides.

The health update from the production comes five days after the show revealed Williams was experiencing ongoing health issues and would be unable to continue with her promotional activities.

When the show's production first shut down at the beginning of the ongoing pandemic, it was filmed remotely for two months from her home.
