Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood were getting ready to step in as co-hosts for The Ellen DeGeneres Show when they got some unexpected news…which they shared on social media.
“Due to someone on their team testing positive for Covid-19 and out of an abundance of caution, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are canceling everything and testing and quarantining for two weeks.”
Garth explains how this positive test was caught, “Before you do any major television, they have you do pre-tests for COVID, then they have you do the final test. On the pre-test, our small little group all tested negative. On the final test, one of the people that were in our little group tested positive. And, so, they did a second test – that came back positive. So we decided just not to risk anything – we cancelled everything for the next two weeks. The Queen and I will be quarantining…living on love…and testing every 72 hours. And our thoughts and prayers are with the one person in this group that has already tested positive…and hope that’s as far as it goes, and hopefully we get past this thing.”
While their Friday appearance on The Ellen Show will not happen — tWitch stepped in as guest-host to welcome guests Ciara and Russell Wilson — you will still be able to check out Garth and Trisha on Sunday Night’s NBC special, Grand Ole Opry: 95 Years of Country Music, as that was pre-recorded before this positive test. Garth’s weekly Facebook Live Studio G sessions will also be postponed due this this result.
We wish Garth and Trish well, and a speedy recovery to their team member that did have the positive test.
