Al Roker Experiencing ‘Mild Symptoms’ After Testing Positive for Coronavirus

Al Roker has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Today show team addressed the weatherman’s absence on Thursday morning’s episode, confirming that Roker, 68, is sitting out of Hurricane Ian coverage due to the virus.

“Some people have been wondering during the storm, ‘Where is Al?’ Al happened to test positive for COVID,” Hoda Kotb said. “We’re happy to say he’s feeling fine, just mild symptoms. He’s home.”

Stand-in meteorologist Bill Karins said he’s been in communication with Roker as to how to cover the devastation of the Florida hurricane.

“He’s been sending us notes,” Karins said. “He wants to be here, he feels well.”
