NBC’s Today show host Hoda Kotb says she tested positive for COVID-19. The 57-year-old Hotb shared with her co-anchors that she is quarantining at home but feeling good and hoping to return to work soon. Kotb is vaccinated and has received her booster shot.
Kotb thanked fans for their well wishes in a tweet, saying: “Thx for well wishes! Feeling good.. cant wait to see you all when I am in the clear! Xo.”
Kotb is the latest television personality to test positive for COVID-19. The View host Whoopi Goldberg also recently tested positive for COVID-19 and has been absent from her show this week, and Late Night host Seth Meyers said Tuesday that he tested positive for COVID-19 and was cancelling his show for the rest of the week.
