George Stephanopoulos has COVID-19.
The “Good Morning America” co-anchor revealed the diagnosis on Monday’s show, explaining that he had been relatively asymptomatic before getting tested.
Nearly two weeks earlier, Stephanopoulos’ wife Ali Wentworth tested positive for the illness caused by the coronavirus.
On Instagram, Wentworth also shared video of her coming out of self-isolation.

Came out of 16 days of isolation. I am grateful for my health. It was a brutal and scary time. But I am one of the lucky ones. And as I continue to recover I am struck by what has become the dehumanization of this plague. People are dying. People are suffering. People are hungry. People are scared. We have to shed all ideological, religious, social, economic barriers and grabbed each other’s hands and move forward united. As people. We can isolate to help others, particularly the incredible health workers and all the courageous and selfless people on the frontlines, but that does not mean we should isolate our hearts. (I know my daughters are screaming that this is so cringeworthy) Grateful to be back to everything except laundry and dishes…
The TV anchor has been caring for his wife while she was self-isolated in a room in their home.
“I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had a cough, never had shortness of breath,” he said of his experience with the illness. “I’m feeling great.”
