Jenna Bush Hager and her family have COVID, Hoda Kotb announced on Wednesday’s “Today with Hoda and Jenna,” explaining her co-host’s absence.
“We should point out, by the way, Jenna’s not here. Jenna got COVID,” Kotb said. She quickly added, “She’s doing great.”
Kotb added, “Her whole family has it. You know how it is, everyone gets it, they quarantine, and then 5 days later, everything’s going to be just fine,” Kotb said. “I talked to her on the phone, she’s great, she’s feeling good.”
