Today Show host contracted COVID-19
In late September, Al Roker shared an Instagram video about his health. He advised fans that he contracted COVID-19. It was a breakthrough case since he just got the booster. Al praised the vaccination for helping him with the symptoms, which were subtle.
Some Today fans assumed he was away on vacation. They have been getting sick of the constant rotation of hosts on the talk show. However, Al made it clear that he wasn’t taking another trip. In fact, he’s been quarantined in his house since his diagnosis.
“The reason I haven’t been part of the Hurricane Ian coverage is I tested positive for COVID,” Al Roker shared in his Instagram video. “It’s not because I’m on vacation or something else is wrong.”
Fans were looking forward to seeing Al cover Hurricane Ian. While most missed him, they were looking forward to his return to the Today Show. Al assured fans when he was expected to return back to work. He made his return in a big way and has had many bizarre segments since then.
Al’s latest disappearance has fans caused once again. They noticed that he’s been absent for much of the week. The concerns grew on Thursday morning. None of his co-hosts shared a reason as to why he was missing.
