Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 and will be stepping away from show duties for "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" while he is recovering.
Kimmel will return to the show at a later date, but said that he is "feeling fine" and is "double vaxxed and boosted." He said in the tweet "the show must not go on."
Kimmel apologized to guests Tom Cruise and Iliza Shlesinger who were scheduled to appear on Monday night's live show.
Our daughter brought us covid (even though we specifically asked her not to) All feeling fine, I am double vaxxed and boosted but the show must not go on. Apologies to @TomCruise & @iliza and thanks to Mike Birbiglia @birbigs who'll be filling in for me starting tomorrow night— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) May 2, 2022
