He has posted the announcement on Twitter saying "On medical advice, and out of an abundance of caution for a mild symptom that arose in the past 48 hrs, I've had a test for COVID-19 and so won't be working on @GMB until I get the results back, which should be tomorrow."

The crew of Good Morning Britain has been minimized for safety, even forcing Piers to have to apply his own makeup (which he admits he is terrible at). Piers wants to avoid putting any of the GMB crew or his co-stars at risk in case he does have the virus.
