Popular American talk show hostess, Ellen DeGeneres, announced on Thursday that she has tested positive for Covid-19.
The comedienne took to her verified Twitter account to share the news. DeGeneres, however, allayed the fears of her fans saying, ‘I’m fine now.’
“Hi Everyone. I want to let you all know that I tested positive for Covid-19. Fortunately, I’m feeling fine right now. Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines. I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe,” she tweeted.
Meanwhile, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has been back in production with Covid-19 safety protocols in place since September.
A spokesperson for Telepictures said that the syndicated program will pause until January, with repeat episodes broadcasting until that time.
