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.”
