Ellen DeGeneres announced today that she has tested positive for COVID, but says she is “feeling fine.”
The 62 year-old talk-show host said she was following all CDC guidelines and everyone who has recently come into close contact with her has been notified.
“I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”
DeGeneres has been hosting The Ellen DeGeneres Show, live from her studio, with guests appearing both in person and virtually.
Hamilton alum Leslie Odom Jr. joined her in person Wednesday for day 11 of her 12 Days of Giveaways.
A spokesperson for Telepictures said that production on Ellen has been “paused” until January.
This comes at the end of a controversial year for DeGeneres, who was accused of running a toxic workplace, including racism, intimidation and a lack of communication, particularly during the coronavirus shutdown.
We all hope you get well soon.
