Michael Strahan Thanks Fans for Well Wishes Amid COVID-19 Recovery

Michael Strahan is luckily on the mend after testing positive for coronavirus.

Last week, the 49-year-old retired football player’s Good Morning America‘s co-hosts revealed that he had tested positive for the virus and that he was doing “well.”

On Wednesday (February 3), Michael shared a video message with fans, thanking them for their well wishes and sharing an update on his recovery.

“Just wanna say thank you to everybody for your well wishes, and thank you everyone who reached out and sent me the get-well wishes and all the advice on how to feel better,” Michael shared. “I just want to let you know I do feel a lot better, and I’m just thankful to be on the side of it that I am.”

“I’m doing well,” Michael continued. “I’m trying to rest as much as I can, trying to hydrate as much as I can, trying to get my strength back so I can get back to work as soon as possible. I miss you guys. I miss work.”

Michael then shared a message of caution about taking safety protocols seriously.

“Make sure you take care of yourself. Wear your mask. Wash your hands. Use your wipes,” Michael advised. “I did all those things, but it just goes to show me that it takes more than just you as an individual — everybody has to do it so that we help out each other. It’s more than just about you. It’s about the people you’re around and the fellow human being. Protect yourself, and by doing that, you’re gonna protect others.”

As of right now, it’s unclear when Michael will be returning to GMA.

We’re glad to hear Michael Strahan’s feeling better!
