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.
“Craig and Al are once again out of an abundance of caution after a colleague on our 3rd hour tested positive. Right now, @alroker is doing the weather...”
In the video, AI assured viewers that he was feeling good and was up to deliver the news as he had not exhibited any symptoms of the virus.
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.
