[ # ] Ellen DeGeneres and Carrie Ann Inaba got the COVID
December 10th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Ellen DeGeneres

Today was supposed to be Day 12 of Ellen Degeneres’ 12 Days of Giving. However, she got a gift that canceled her plans to do that.

“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,” Degeneres wrote. “I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”

DeGeneres is the first talk show host to come down with coronavirus since they resumed production back in their studios. Her daytime talk show was the first one to bring back a live audience. She also interviews guests in person without a mask.

I wonder her diagnosis will change how things are done on the other shows. Only time will tell.

UPDATE: The Talk’s Carrie Ann Inaba also tested positive for COVID-19. She is second the daytime host to get it.

The Talk and Ellen tape on two different lots a few miles away from each other. Actually, I live in between both studios, and now I am worried I am going to get it. Good thing I cannot go out.

Get well soon, Carrie. Hopefully, your cats are taking care of you.
