“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts will work from home beginning on Wednesday as coronavirus concerns intensify. 

The morning show host interviewed her doctor Gail Roboz on Tuesday, who advised the public that those with pre-existing medical conditions should take precautions to protect themselves from COVID-19, according to a report from Deadline.

Roberts is a survivor of breast cancer and is heeding the warnings of Roboz as the World Health Organization (WHO) cautions that New York City, where GMA is filmed, may become the epicenter of virus outbreaks in the nation.

“I heard your advice, and because of what is going on in New York City, this will be my last day in the studio for a little bit, and I will do like everyone else,” Roberts told her doctor. “It is hard to leave because you want the normalcy. You want it not just for yourself but for our viewers.”

Robert was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and underwent a bone marrow transplant in 2012. The anchor has also been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder.

Craig Melvin, Al Roker, Savannah Guthrie and other anchors of the show have been in self-isolation, appearing on the show remotely from their homes after one of the show’s producers tested positive for the coronavirus.
