Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan Tested For COVID-19
He has now revealed via Twitter that he is in the clear for the scary virus "UPDATE: My COVID-19 test was negative. I was advised to take the test by my doctor after developing possible coronavirus symptoms, and was entitled to do so as a Govt-designated essential worker. I'll be back on @GMB as soon as my doctor advises I'm OK to return to work."
Piers' GMB Colleagues Joke He Wanted Time Off
Piers' co-workers at Good Morning Britain announced the news as well and had a little fun while Piers was stuck at home. Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard joked he was home because he wanted a nap and Dr. Hilary Jones said: "I think he just wants to get his car cleaned."
His colleagues wished him all the best and then used the opportunity to explain to the public why they were not self-isolating. Dr. Jones states "I spoke to Piers yesterday and he doesn't have symptoms normally associated with COVID-19, but as he said, out of an abundance of precaution he has taken the test."
To which, Piers' co-anchor Susanna further explained: "It doesn't affect us here in the studio because we are practicing strict social distancing and the rules are different, I presume, in workplaces where you are social distancing and households perhaps, where that isn't possible."
After all, it is better to be safe than sorry. We wish Piers a quick recovery!
