Jimmy Kimmel reveals he’s tested positive for COVID-19 once again

Jimmy Kimmel has tested positive for COVID-19, once again. The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host uncovered Tuesday that he still has the virus after sharing that he contracted COVID earlier this month.

“I’m such a positive person, I tested positive AGAIN. I am feeling fine,” Kimmel wrote on Twitter Tuesday night, before revealing that John Mulaney and Andy Samberg will be stepping in for the late-night host Wednesday.

“The great John @Mulaney & Andy Samberg @TheLonelyIsland have graciously agreed to host @JimmyKimmelLive for me tomorrow,” he added.

Kimmel’s positive test result comes only days after he first tested positive for the virus and just a short time after he got back to his hosting duties on May 9.

“Our daughter brought us Covid (even though we specifically asked her not to) All feeling fine, I am double vaxxed and boosted but the show must not go on,” the 54-year-old tweeted on May 2. “Apologies to @tomcruise & @iliza and thanks to Mike Birbiglia @birbigs who will be filling in for me starting tomorrow night.”

Kimmel shared that he would be staying home with his better half, Molly McNearney and their two children, Jane, 7, and 5-year-old Billy.
