Savannah Guthrie is leaving the TODAY show after testing positive for Covid-19

Yesterday, which is Tuesday, co-host Savannah Guthrie was on TODAY, which is the TODAY Show on NBC. However, before the rest of TODAY yesterday, she tested positive for Covid-19 and so had to leave TODAY so after 7:30am. ET, to no longer appear on TODAY yesterday, which is February 28th. This also means that the next day—meaning today—will not be TODAY, since he will be isolated from everyone else for much longer than a day due to Covid-19. Do you have all these?

Yes, yesterday, February 28, at the end of the TODAY show at 8 am. ET, Sheinelle Jones offered the following update: “It’s been an interesting morning for us, by the way. As we said, Savannah left early, she wasn’t feeling well, so she had a Covid test.” Jones went on to say: “It came back positive. So as soon as we found out, he ran home to rest. So Savannah, we love you, we wish you a speedy recovery.”

The TODAY show’s tweet below included a video clip of Jones making the announcement alongside Al Roker and Carson Daly:

Essentially it’s “together” for Roker. As you can see, while Jones was talking, Roker moved progressively to the left of the screen. This prompted Dali to ask Rokeri, “Where are you going? Where are you headed?’ To this, Roker replied, “Luckily Sheinelle was sitting between me and Savannah.”

Of course, having Jones between Guthrie and him might not have really protected Rocker all that much. It certainly could have meant that Roker was a bit further away from Guthrie, probably at least six feet or a Gosling (because Ryan Gosling is about six feet tall). This could help prevent the larger droplets from reaching the Roker. However, it wouldn’t help much against any possible aerosol transmission. It’s not like Jones would have sucked all the virus out of the air before it got to Rocker. Inviting your friends to take a deep breath while you’re around probably isn’t going to clear the air of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). This will not be anywhere near as effective as wearing a good quality face mask and having good air filtration and purification.

The other thing you can do is get vaccinated against Covid-19. Guthrie, who is 51, has already been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. He also got a booster shot on top of it. Additionally, she tested positive for Covid-19 twice in 2022, in January 2022 and May 2022 as well. All of this shows that getting vaccinated against Covid-19, recovering from a SARS-CoV-2 infection, or both does not mean you can’t get infected with the virus again. And again. And again. So if you want to reduce the risk of infection, using a good quality face mask can help. As I have previously covered for Forbesmany scientific studies have shown that good quality face masks, such as N95 respirators, can be a relatively simple way to reduce the transmission of the virus, even though some politicians make it seem like wearing a face mask is like being in an iron cage. woman. .

Guthrie’s TODAY show co-host Hoda Kotb has been away from TODAY since Monday. It is not clear why Kotb is down TODAY for two days and if this has anything to do with Covid-19. Time will tell if Kotb returns to TODAY today, tomorrow or the day after.
