Broadcast journalist Gayle King has tested positive for COVID-19. 

On Monday, the CBS Good Morning co-host announced the diagnosis in an Instagram video. “OK, the thing I’ve been dreading has finally happened,” she shared within the clip. “I just tested positive for… I got the ‘Rona.” 

“They ran a test, one other test, we’re going to take another simply to be certain. But within the meantime, I’ve been asked to go away the constructing and go home,” the 67-year-old talk show host explained. 

While sharing the news, King was approached by co-anchor, Nate Burleson, within the lobby of the CBS studios.

“Hi Gayle,” Burleson said as he checked in on his co-host. “You good?” Following the transient encounter, Burleson was asked to distance himself from King as a security precaution since he was unmasked on the time. She wore two masks on the time.

King concluded the video by adding that she was in actual fact, “double vaxxed and boosted,” before being escorted out of the studios.   

Just a few hours later, King shared a video update to her Instagram confirming that after 4 rounds of COVID tests, it was time to just accept the truth that her results were, in actual fact, true.

“I’ve had three PCR tests all positive, then I got here home and took an at-home test, two lines means it’s positive. That’s not good,” she shared. “So I’ve had 4 tests that each one said positive. I used to be hoping against hope that it might be one other false alarm because I’ve had two of those before.”

In light of CBS COVID protocols, King shared that she gets tested “on a regular basis” and even tested negative on Friday. It wasn’t until Saturday that she woke up with a slight cold but “wasn’t overly concerned” in regards to the symptoms. 

While it’s still unclear to King where she may need contracted the virus, she concluded the video by reiterating her vaccination status and hopes that her symptoms remain moderate. 

“I can say the ‘Rona finally got me, and I’ve been trying really hard to avoid it. But I’m so glad I’m double boosted and double vaxxed. And let’s just hope that my symptoms stay mild because right away it really does feel like a chilly, a slight cold.”

We wish King a swift recovery.
