As for Robach, the GMA3: What You Need to Know co-anchor shared a photo of herself giving the camera a thumbs up while wrapped in a blanket.
“I’m quickly on the mend because I’m fully vaccinated and boosted!” she wrote. “It was crazy though – I had exhaustion and lower back pain last weekend – not putting two and two together that those were early omicron symptoms… Just thought I was pushing myself too hard with my training runs!!”
“It’s now day 6 since symptoms started, so hopefully getting stronger every day, was even able to jog a few slow miles in the snow – no one else was crazy enough to run in that [snow] so had the path to myself!” Robach, who also shared a photo of herself bundled up for a run, added. “Hunkering down now and wishing everyone a safe and beautiful weekend.”
Roberts and Robach are just the latest morning show anchors to test positive for COVID-19. The news came just over a week after “Today” hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb both revealed that they’d tested positive, and both missed episodes of their show.
The virus has also swept through late-night talk shows as well, with Jimmy Fallon, James Corden and Seth Meyers all revealing their COVID-19 diagnoses since the start of the new year.
