Al Roker Delivers Weather Report from His Home on 'Today' Show during Coronavirus Self-Isolation

Following the Coronavirus pandemic affecting different parts of the world, AI Roker delivered the weather news from home while in self-isolation.

With the Coronavirus outbreak hitting different parts of the world, extra caution is being taken by individuals to reduce the spread of the virus. This is done by self-isolating and checking for symptoms when one might have been in contact with an infected person.

In response, AI Roker, popularly known as the “Weatherman,” had to deliver the weather report from home because of his exposure to a colleague who was infected.

Following his absence on Monday, AI delivered the Tuesday weather report from the comfort of his home, where he was on a 15-day isolation period, and the news was delivered from his kitchen.

Sharing a clip of it on Twitter, via their official Twitter page, Today, showed how the news was delivered from the comfort of his home. The clip had the caption:

He also said that he was grateful to the team that made it possible for him to air the news from home as all things were synced from both ends. The 65-year-old also assured viewers that he was alone and was using his iPad to air.

Many American companies are adopting the work from home strategy to curtail the spread of the virus.

After AI delivered his news, Savannah jokingly asked if he was wearing pants to which he stepped back and showed that he was wearing comfortable stretch out pants with a button-down shirt.

In a statement released by the network, NBC News president Noah Oppenheim stated that a member of staff had been infected with the virus. He also said:

“We are fully supporting our colleague, who is experiencing mild symptoms and receiving medical care, and I know you join me in sending...”

To avoid the spread, AI Roker and Craig Melvin decided to go into isolation as they had contact with the individual. AI Roker seems to be doing well despite the exposure to the virus and the risk associated with those his age.

He has expressed that he is excellent and has not exhibited any symptoms, although he will continue to be in isolation in a bid to be extra cautious.
