Michael Strahan tests positive for Covid-19, ‘GMA’ hosts confirm
On Thursday, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos and Amy Robach resolved reports that their fellow co-host and NFL Hall of Famer had actually evaluated favorable.
“We know that you have noticed that Michael has not been here with us this week,” Roberts stated. “He wanted us to let you know he has tested positive for Covid. He’s at home quarantining right now.”
Stephanopoulos acknowledged that “so many of you asked about him, reached out to him” and Stephanopoulos stated Strahan is grateful.
“He’s also feeling well and looking forward to being back here shortly,” Stephanopoulos stated. “You should know that all of us here, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, have been cleared by Disney to be here after contact tracing and following CDC guidelines.”
Roberts stated she’s been texting with Strahan and joked that his pet dog Enzo is “keeping him nice and warm.”
In April, Stephanopoulos evaluated favorable for Covid-19 and was asymptomatic.
