Seth Doane

Status: Tested positive

The CBS News foreign correspondent’s March 16 report on CBS This Morning was an update on his own health: Doane had tested positive for COVID-19, which he’d taken after noticing he had “a little bit of a cough.” He said that, so far, he’d had colds that felt worse. He said the psychological part had been the worst of it so far. He remained in lock down at his residence in Rome, staying isolated even from his husband.

“This is not what I want to be discussing on TV. This is not what I want to be known for,” Doane told viewers. “I am trying to be public and open because I think it is vital that we stop the spread of this thing.”

In all, six CBS News employees have been diagnosed with the virus, host Gayle King said.

Jenner took a test for the coronavirus after she attended a birthday party for Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge, who’s since been hospitalized with the illness. “Kris wasn’t sick and didn’t have any symptoms, but since she was in contact with someone who tested positive, she took the test,” a source told ET. “Jenner luckily tested negative for coronavirus.”

The L.A.-based photographer said doctors gave him the test after they found he didn’t have the flu. “I don’t know where I got it. I don’t know how I got it,” Higgs told his followers on March 15. “If you are feeling sick, straight away just quarantine yourself.”

The director of the upcoming live-action adaptation of Marvel’s Shang-Chi has a newborn baby boy, and he was thinking of him when he went into self-quarantine on March 12. Marvel and Disney subsequently shut down production on the movie entirely. On March 16, Cretton said he’d taken a test for the coronavirus after learning that he had been in “close proximity with some people who had potentially been exposed,” but he’d tested negative. “But I will continue to be even more careful in the days ahead. Because if you believe in good science, and I do, we still have a mountain to climb together,” Cretton said.

“Hey guys, I tested positive for COVID-19 and have been in quarantine the last week,” Matthews, who provided the voice of Honeymaren in Frozen 2, revealed March 16 on InstagramStories. She said she was feeling better but would remain in quarantine until she was told to do otherwise. Matthews also shared her symptoms, which she said she hoped some found helpful.
