ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt tests positive for COVID-19, will miss next few ‘SportsCenter’ episodes [Video]
Popular ESPN personality Scott Van Pelt will be sidelined for the next few midnight episodes of “SportsCenter” after testing positive for COVID-19, he revealed through Twitter on Thursday.
Van Pelt disclosed that while he feels fine, he has lost his senses of smell and taste, which first prompted him to get tested. It’s unclear how long Van Pelt will be out.
Won’t be doing shows for a bit after a positive Covid-19 test. Thankfully, no fever & I feel fine. Just can’t smell or taste anything which was my clue to go get a test.
So, I will hunker down and hopefully can be back at it before too long.
