Ellen DeGeneres Tests Positive for COVID-19


"Fortunately, I am feeling fine right now," the talk show host assured the public.

Ellen DeGeneres has tested positive for COVID-19.

The lesbian talk show host revealed her diagnosis in a Thursday tweet.

Hi Everyone, I want to let you all know that I have tested positive for COVID-19," she stated on Twitter. "Fortunately, I am feeling fine right now."

The 62-year-old comedian added, "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."

DeGeneres has become the most high-profile lesbian in the entertainment industry to test positive for the virus. Earlier this year, Andy Cohen revealed his own diagnosis and Terrence McNally died of complications related to it.
