62-year-old talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, moments ago, announced via Twitter, that she has tested positive for COVID-19.

“Hi Everyone, I want to let you all know that I tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, I’m feeling fine right now,” she began.



“Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines,” she continued. “I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”

It is not yet known whether Ellen’s show will shift from home as it was during lockdown or whether a series of guest hosts will be taking over until the holiday break.
