Ellen DeGeneres Tests Positive for COVID-19
I Have COVID
… But Feelin’ Fine
Ellen DeGeneres has tested positive for coronavirus, but says, so far, she feels okay … but she wants to give everyone she’s been in close contact with a heads up.
The talk show host revealed her diagnosis Thursday morning and says she’s following all the proper CDC guidelines. It sounds like she’s going to be taking a break from work, because she adds … “I’ll see you again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe.”
As for the guests she’s had in studio in the last week — Justin Bieber, Bryan Cranston, Diane Keaton, Alison Brie and Lil Nas X.
It’s been a rough stretch for Ellen the past several months. We broke the story … her Montecito mansion with Portia de Rossi was burglarized in July, which led to a serious security upgrade at the home.
Around the same time … several ex-employees of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” alleged a toxic work environment, for which she later apologized.
Ellen’s show will be on hiatus for the Xmas holidays, so there isn’t an issue shooting the show.
