Viewers of “Good Morning America” may have noticed Michael Strahan’s absence this week.
Strahan’s “GMA” co-hosts confirmed he’d tested positive for COVID-19 and was quarantining at home during Thursday’s show. The hosts told viewers he was grateful for everyone’s messages and well-wishes and was doing OK.

TMZ broke the news Wednesday, explaining how Strahan’s diagnosis was the reason he appeared remotely on Sunday’s edition of “Fox NFL Sunday” — he was “already taking precautions.”
On Saturday, a source told TMZ Strahan learned he’d been exposed and began to quarantine immediately. The outlet added he was not currently experiencing any severe symptoms.
Strahan’s daughters were reportedly in contact with him following his exposure and were awaiting the results of their tests — as was Strahan’s mother, with whom the girls live much of the time.
