“Good Morning America” host Michael Strahan has tested positive for COVID-19.
“We know that you have noticed that Michael has not been with us here this week,” co-host Robin Roberts said Thursday on air, revealing Strahan’s diagnosis. She said that he is currently in quarantine.

“Good Morning America” co-host Amy Robach joked that she told Strahan to “hurry back” so she can "set her alarm clock back an hour."
"Michael, we wish you the very best," she said.
Strahan, a member of the NFL Hall of Fame who also provides analysis on “Fox NFL Sunday,” appeared remotely during last Sunday’s NFC championship game, The Associated Press reported.
Strahan has been a co-host on “Good Morning America” since 2016. He retired from his professional football career after the New York Giants won their third Super Bowl title following the 2007 season.
