What We Know About Savannah Guthrie's COVID-19 Diagnosis

Nowadays, news surrounding a celebrity COVID-19 diagnosis isn't out of the ordinary. Just a few weeks ago, "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon revealed he had a breakthrough infection, CNN reported. Soon after, Seth Meyers, who hosts "Late Night with Seth Meyers," also revealed that he too had tested positive. 

According to People, another big TV name to have recently disclosed their COVID-19 diagnosis is the co-host of "Today," Savannah Guthrie. The news isn't exactly a surprise considering Guthrie's co-host, Hoda Kotb, tested positive a week prior. "We're trading places," Guthrie said during the show. "I'm working from home. You're back in the studio. You have a negative test for Covid. I just tested positive for Covid, so here we go," she added. 

Kotb was able to return back to work the following Monday after two negative tests. "I know that your negative test will come quickly but here's to happy healing," Kotb said during the "Today" show, per People.

Savannah Guthrie shared an update on her COVID-19 symptoms

While Savannah Guthrie may be in isolation, at least the journalist is feeling better. Writing on Twitter, she revealed that she is "feeling fine" and "will be back in studio soon." As People reported, the "Today" co-host also revealed that her symptoms include "little sniffles" and "not much more than that."

Furthermore, the "Today" anchor was vaccinated against the virus. In fact, Guthrie documented her first vaccination dose at N.Y.C.'s Rockefeller Plaza for the "Today" show, People added. She took it even a step further by posting a congratulatory message on her social media. "What a day, what a privilege — so grateful to receive the vaccine!," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "Hoping this helps spread awareness and encourages others to do the same, so we can get back to life as we love it!"

Guthrie's positive diagnoses come after other entertainment figures, many of whom are vaccinated, revealed their positive diagnoses. Considering how contagious the omicron variant is and the rate of breakthrough infections (via NBC New York), we may be looking at more positive test results in the near future.
