ESPN host Scott Van Pelt gave fans quite a scare earlier this month when he revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 and had some symptoms. But he had some good news for everyone today.
On Sunday, Van Pelt announced on Twitter that while he still can’t smell or taste, he’s able to talk and has tested negative for COVID-19. As a result, he is able to do his show and will resume his SportsCenter duties tonight.
“Can’t smell. Can’t taste. Don’t need to be able to do either to do a show. I can talk and I tested negative,” Van Pelt wrote. “See you at midnight.”
The announcement comes 10 days after Van Pelt announced his positive test for COVID-19. He noted at the time that he wasn’t feverish and pledged to get back quickly.
