This week, “Today” show host, Savannah Guthrie, took social distancing to the next level when she hosted the show from her home. She also had someone special working as her producer.


On Wednesday, Guthrie took to social media to share a behind-the-scenes look into hosting the “Today” show from her home. She shared two images showing her sitting on a chair as she did her work.

The television personality captioned her post writing: “Live... from my basement... this is TODAY.” She also revealed that her husband, Michael Feldman, was on hand to assist with the process.

Guthrie gave him a shoutout in her post and shared how he “has turned into producer and technician!!” The photos showed Feldman wearing headsets while working on a laptop.

The co-host is currently self-quarantining under the advice given by NBC medical professionals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has also given the same recommendation to the whole nation to curb the spread of the coronavirus.


Savannah’s flu-like symptoms

Guthrie was advised to work from home after she started coming down with a sore throat and runny nose. The star initially announced on Tuesday night that she would be staying home for several days.

Besides Guthrie, her co-workers Al Roker and Craig Melvin are also self-quarantining. The only person left in the studio is Hoda Kotb.

At one point this week, Roker gave a weather report from his kitchen. So far, Roker, Melvin, and Kotb are all fine and aren’t showing any symptoms of the virus.


Today staff member has virus

The co-hosts started staying away from the studio after a staff member on the 3rd Hour of Today tested positive for the coronavirus. On Monday, it was reported that the 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. hours would continue as normal.


Today show changes

Kotb and Guthrie would be co-anchoring and will provide "a live news update at 9 a.m.” After that, programming would go into showing “previously aired content."
