Seth Meyers tests positive for Covid, cancels emissions
Late night with Seth Meyers returned from vacation Monday with a new episode, with remote guests Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley from It’s us and David Byrne from the Broadway Show American Utopia. But that was the last new episode Late at night will air this week, as Meyers tweeted on Tuesday morning that he had tested positive for Covid-19 and was taking the rest of the week.
In a tweet, Meyers wrote that he was feeling “fine (thanks for the shots and the booster!)” And expected the show to return “next Monday” in some form or another.
Meyers isn’t the only late-night host to catch Covid while on vacation. Yesterday, Tonight’s showJimmy Fallon – who like Meyers records his show at Rockefeller Center – revealed he tested positive for Covid on the show’s first day of vacation. He said he was also vaccinated and boosted and was “lucky to have only mild symptoms,” which went away in time for him to return to work yesterday.
Meyers hosted Late at night since 2014 and is under contract to stay with the show until at least 2025. At the start of the pandemic, the show moved away, but returned to its Rockefeller Center studio without a studio audience in the fall of 2020. Its first broadcast returned with a live audience was on October 11. 2021.
Get well soon, Seth. Here is his interview with David Byrne from last night Late at night.
