‘GMA’ Host George Stephanopoulos Tests Positive for Coronavirus

April 13, 2020

George Stephanopoulos has tested positive for coronavirus.

The “Good Morning America” anchor shared his diagnosis on the show on Monday morning, GMA reports.

The news comes two weeks after his wife, actress and bestselling author Ali Wentworth, tested positive for COVID-19.

Throughout her illness, Stephanopoulos served as his wife’s caretaker in their New York home, where Wentworth has self-isolated in a room to avoid spreading the illness.

During his appearance, the “GMA” anchor said that while his contracting COVID-19 was “no surprise,” he has been asymptomatic, unlike his wife.

"I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had a cough, never had shortness of breath," he said. "I’m feeling great."

When Wentworth was diagnosed, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC News chief medical correspondent, commended the family for what she deemed their “home version of social distancing.”

"The key is really isolation and you guys are doing it right," she said. "We have to remember that everyone in the household who has been exposed should presume that they are infected until they’re out of a 14-day window of observation."
