Al Roker Had Contact with Coronavirus, So He's Doing the Weather Report From His Home Quarantine

Al Roker, and his Today show co-host Craig Melvin, are staying home from the morning show for a few days after a staffer was diagnosed with Coronavirus.

Well, Al, who has been the longtime weather man for the NBC show, decided he wanted to do the weather report from his home quarantine!

Craig and Al are out once again — we’re just being super, super cautious,” Savannah Guthrie explained. “There was a 9 o’clock employee, someone on the 3rd hour of Today, who tested positive for the virus. Craig and Al had some contact, so we’re just, out of an abundance of caution, keeping them home.”

“But they feel good. In fact, Al feels so good that he wants to do the weather,” Savannah said, before sending it over to him to give his weather report!

“I didn’t have to commute in, so I did sleep in!” Al said. “We’ve kind of jerry-rigged this system, so I’ve got all my graphics and everything I need.”
