Al shared that he tested positive for COVID-19. He wanted to share a quick update for those who were genuinely concerned about his disappearance.
Al Roker hopes to get back on the show by Monday. He called out the critics who claim the hosts take too many breaks. He said that he was not on vacation. Earlier this week, fans wanted to know why Al hasn’t covered Hurricane Ian.
“The reason I haven’t been part of the Hurricane Ian coverage is I tested positive for COVID,” Al Roker said in his Instagram video. “It’s not because I’m on vacation or something else is wrong.”
Regardless, he’s feeling fine. Al got his booster last week. Thankfully, the symptoms have been mild, which he credits the vaccination for. Al feels positive that he will get back to work soon.
On the same day, Hoda Kotb told fans that Al Roker tested positive for COVID-19. She explained why he’s been missing from the Hurricane Ian coverage. She assured fans that he’s “feeling fine” and has “mild symptoms.” Substitute meteorologist Bill Karins also noted that Al really wanted to be in the studio.

“I’ve been on vacation for a few weeks, then back to work,” Al Roker said in the video. “But also, I kind of tweaked my knee a little bit on vacation, so I had to lay off walking a bit.”
Al Roker had knee replacement surgery 18 years ago. His doctor informed him that he will need to have surgery on that same knee within the next six months. Al told his fans that he can still walk and perform other tasks, but he has to take it easy. He also told his own followers “don’t overdo it” and “don’t go crazy.”
