While he was introducing the nominees for Outstanding Comedy Series, a nurse wearing full PPE came out on stage to test the 45-year-old actor for COVID-19.

“We’re just legally obligated to get COVID tests every hour,” Jason joked as the nurse swabbed both of his nostrils. “Academy policy. But don’t worry, you won’t even notice she’s here.”

Jason then asked when he would have his test results and the nurse said “three to six weeks” as she left the stage.

Jason then announced that Schitt’s Creek was the winner, making history!
