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.”
