Where has Al Roker been?

Before his big return to the Today Show, Al Roker updated his fans on Instagram. He shared a video update. Al got questions from fans who wanted to know where he was during the Hurricane Ian coverage. Some thought he was on another vacation, which he denied.

“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. I got boosted last week. And the science works. I don’t feel anything really and all is good.”

Bill also poked fun at the long-term host by adding: “I can only imagine the step count in his house, just going back and forth.”
