Seth Meyers has become the latest late night host to be hit by COVID – and for the second time.
The host has announced that NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers would be canceled for the rest of the week due to a positive test for the COVID-19 virus.
“After negative tests Monday and Tuesday, I tested positive for Covid this morning,” Meyers tweeted on Wednesday. “Cancelled can be seen for the rest of this week. Apologies to our regular guests and loyal viewers.”
Meyers previously announced he had COVID in January, making him one of many to be reinfected by the virus in the current sixth wave, which is powered by the highly contagious variant BA.5.
Fellow late night hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel tested positive for the virus in May, forcing their respective shows to make some last minute changes as well.
