Michael Strahan, Pro Football Hall of Famer and host of Good Morning America, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is himself quarantined, according to people familiar with the situation.

Strahan currently has no serious symptoms of COVID-19. People spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity due to medical restrictions.

TMZ first reported positive Strahan tests.

Strahan, who also provides analysis of the Fox NFL Sunday pregame show, performed remotely during the NFC championship game last Sunday. However, Strahan also appeared remotely for much of the season so that the network’s Thursday night games would not conflict with its “GMA” schedule.

49-year-old Strahan hasn’t been on the ABC morning show all week and it remains uncertain when he will be back.

He has been part of Good Morning America since 2016 and has been a staple of Fox’s NFL coverage since retiring after the New York Giants won the third of their four Super Bowl titles in the 2007 season.
