Ellen DeGeneres tested positive for COVID-19 in early December, with production on her talk show will be paused until January.
“Hi Everyone, I want to let you all know that I tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, I’m feeling fine right now. Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines. I’ll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe,” she tweeted.
One week later, the talk show host updated fans on her health.
“Hi everybody, just saying thank you to all the well wishes out there, I appreciate it very much. I’m feeling 100 per cent, I feel really good,” DeGeneres said in a video shared to her Twitter.
“One thing that they don’t tell you is you get, somehow, excruciating back pain,” she added. “Didn’t know that was a symptom, but I talked to some other people — back pain. Who knew? How come?”
