Gayle King Reveals She Tested Positive for COVID-19, Asked to Leave Work Immediately

Gayle King Tested Positive for COVID-19

COVID-19 has been found in Gayle King. The 67-year-old CBS Mornings anchor revealed her diagnosis on Monday. “OK, the thing I’ve been waiting for has finally happened,” King said in an Instagram video.

“I just got a positive result for…

I was able to obtain Rona. They do a test, then another, and we’ll run one more just to be sure. However, I’ve been requested to leave the building and return home in the meanwhile.”

Nate Burleson, King’s co-anchor, popped in to ask, “You good?” King’s footage was somewhat interrupted by her co-anchor, who stepped in to ask, “You good?”

Burleson was told to keep walking because he didn’t have a mask on when he approached King, who was masked, demonstrating CBS Mornings’ procedures.

King stated that she is “double vaxxed and boosted” before signing off and exiting the building.

Gayle King Tested Positive for COVID-19

On Monday’s episode of CBS Mornings, which airs at 7 a.m. ET, King made his first appearance. However, King was significantly absent near the end of the show, with only Burleson and Tony Dokoupil remaining. Before signing off, Dokoupil informed viewers that King had tested positive for COVID-19, but that she was well.

The anchor provided another update, this time verifying that her diagnosis is correct after four tests. “It appears that I will have to embrace reality,” she remarked in an Instagram video. “I had three PCR tests, all of which were positive, so I went home and did an at-home test, which yielded two lines, indicating that it was positive. That’s not a good thing. So far, I’ve had four tests, all of which have come back positive. I was hoping against hope that it was just another false alarm since I’d already experienced two.”

King claimed she tested negative on Friday but awoke with a minor cold on Saturday. The anchor stated that she was unconcerned because she has experienced similar symptoms in the past and was OK. However, when she was tested on Monday, the findings were positive.

King went on to say that she couldn’t pinpoint exactly where she got the infection.

“I can say that the Rona finally got me, despite my best efforts to prevent it. I’m glad I’m double boosted and vaxxed, though. And let’s hope my symptoms remain modest because right now it feels like I have a cold, although a minor one.”

King and her co-anchor on CBS Mornings, Vladimir Duthiers, had a scare in February when they both had false-positive COVID tests. The results of King’s test arrived one day before her vacation. Both anchors were eventually cleared to fly and return to the news desk.
