TODAY‘s Al Roker and Craig Melvin were off the air on Monday (March 16).
The two were sidelined because an NBC staffer that works on TODAY‘s third hour tested positive for COVID-19. Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie said Roker and Melvin took the day away from the show as a precaution.
Both Roker and Melvin are “fine right now” according to their co-anchors. The staff promises to keep their viewers up to date and they’re trying to play exactly by the rules.
“Feeling great this am. Thinking about our friend and colleague. Thinking about everyone grappling with this right now. I’ll be fine. So will we,” Melvin shared to Twitter.
