Robin Roberts from GMA Is Working from Home Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
"Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts is working from home "like many" others amid the Coronavirus pandemic, hoping to keep health threats at a minimum during these uncertain times.
Due to Robin Roberts' underlying health conditions, her doctors advised her to stay home and continue to work from there. She ultimately took their advice and began working at home since Wednesday.
Celebrities and TV personalities from around the world have been encouraging their viewers to practice social distancing.
WORKING FROM HOME AMID COVID-19
With New York City as one of the hot spots for Coronavirus in America, staying at home is the best choice for Robin Roberts, especially since she is a cancer survivor who had to battle a rare blood and bone marrow disease.
Robin joins the growing list of TV personalities who are broadcasting from their own homes amid the rising threat of COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. The 59-year-old newscaster created a makeshift screening room on her basement, making sure to continue bringing her viewers with news they can trust.
BROADCASTING NEWS FROM AT HOME
Just like Roberts, her co-host, chief meteorologist Ginger Zee, has been providing viewers with weather reports from her home as well, after two members at her son's school tested positive for the highly-contagious virus.
Meanwhile, TV show hosts like Wendy Williams have decided to do other preventive measures against COVID-19, such as not having a live studio audience on her show to avoid the amount of people in the room.

ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO STAY AT HOME
While co-hosts and audience participation play a huge part in talk shows, the current situation around the world makes it difficult for that to continue happening. For now, she will continue filming but will not have a live studio audience until further notice.
Celebrities and TV personalities from around the world have been encouraging their viewers to practice social distancing by staying at home to try and curb the spread of the Coronavirus. By doing so, people eliminate the risk of infecting other people.
