The late-night host took to Twitter to reveal that while he is “double vaxxed and boosted”, he has still tested positive for the virus after catching it from his youngest daughter.
He tweeted:” 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.”
