This year has been a long time for all of us, Roomies, but Ellen DeGeneres has definitely seen better times. In a message posted on her Instagram account on Friday, she revealed to her fans that she had tested positive for COVID-19.
“Hi everyone, I want you all to know that I have tested positive for COVID-19,” she said. “Fortunately, I’m fine right now. Everyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified and I am following all proper CDC guidelines. We’ll all meet again after the holidays. Please stay safe and healthy. “
It is unclear whether or not Ellen’s show will continue without her at this point.
When Ellen spoke of her show, she was already in the middle of an internal investigation back in July when employees complained about abuse, discrimination and racism in the workplace. The investigation went on for months as Ellen attempted to remove employees who were responsible for creating the toxic environment.
Amid the backlash she received, Ellen allegedly hinted that she wanted to end her show all together.
Even so, the Ellen Show returned to its 18th season in September, and Ellen addressed the allegations earlier in the season, saying that she takes full responsibility for what happened.
“I know that I am in a position of privilege and power and with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens on my show,” she said. “In the last few weeks we have had a lot of conversations about the show, the workplace and what we want for the future. We have made the necessary changes and are starting a new chapter today. “
Good wishes Ellen’s way!
