Michael Strahan Has Contracted COVID-19

Michael Strahan has tested positive for the coronavirus.

On Wednesday, TMZ broke the news that the “Good Morning America” co-host has contracted the virus and is quarantining.

The outlet noted that the former NFL player has been absent from “GMA” all week and has made only virtual appearances on “FOX NFL Sunday.”

On Thursday, Strahan’s “GMA” co-anchors Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, and Amy Robach confirmed his diagnosis and said he is doing “well.”

“We know that you have noticed that Michael has not been here with us this week. He wanted us to let you know that he has tested positive for COVID and is at home quarantining right now,” Roberts said.

“So many of you have reached out to him and asked about him and he says, ‘Thank you for the concern and well wishes.’ He’s also feeling well and looking forward to being back here shortly,” said Stephanopoulos, who contracted COVID-19 last April.

“You should know that all of us here — both in front of the camera and behind the scenes — have been cleared by Disney to be here after contact tracing and following CDC guidelines,” Stephanopoulos added.

“Michael, we wish you the very best,” Robach concluded.

Per TMZ, Strahan discovered Saturday that he had been exposed to the virus sometime last week, and immediately began quarantining.

Sources say he is currently not experiencing any severe symptoms.

Unfortunately, the outlet reports that Strahan’s daughters — presumably twins Isabella and Sophia — came into contact with him after he had been exposed.

TMZ says his daughters are getting tested along with their mother, Jean.

As of this writing, it is unclear if they have received their results.
