Seth Meyers Tests Positive for COVID-19, Cancels Shows

Seth Meyers stated on Tuesday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and would be canceling his Late Night broadcasts for the next week.

In a message posted to Twitter, the host said he was feeling fine and would have an update next Monday “to see what cool location we will try and pass off as a studio.”

The announcement comes just one day after Tonight Show host and fellow Saturday Night Live veteran Jimmy Fallon revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 during the holiday break.

In a message posted to Instagram, Fallon shared a photo of himself masked and waiting in an isolation room. “Hey guys, on the first day of our holiday break I tested positive for Covid. I was vaccinated and boostered which made me lucky enough to only have mild symptoms,” he wrote.

Fallon thanked the medical professionals who “work so hard around the clock to get everyone vaxxed” and NBC “for taking the testing protocols so seriously and doing a great job.” He also worked in a joke.

The host recovered in time for The Tonight Show’s return from hiatus on Monday.
