With DeGeneres' show now once again filming, the principal said the school filmed its segment Monday, which will air Wednesday on NBC and will be shared on EllenTube.com soon after. "I was in hair and makeup. and then my assistant Craig walks in and says, "You tested positive for COVID" - and then everyone around me ran away", DeGeneres said.

"Obviously there are a lot of negative things going on so instead I wanted to talk about something positive".

"It's the only symptom I had", she said. But, it is a symptom.

"It's the only symptom I had. I didn't lose my sense of taste, although I did wear Crocs with socks for a day", she joked.

DeGeneres noted she "slept for 16 hours a day" in the first three days of the illness, before she woke up with back pain, in the form of spasms, which were not helped by pain pills nor muscle relaxers.

The daytime talk show host candidly (and rather amusingly) detailed her experience with the deadly virus, which she contracted in December and led to The Ellen DeGeneres Show shutting down production early. "I wear a mask". I only lick three or four door handles. "So it's a mystery to me, how that would happen. They told [executive producer] Andy Lassner and he ran at full speed off the lot, which is fantastic - I didn't realise you could run". It's amusing, people just really get scared, and they ran. I'll see you all again after the holidays. I know that I'm in a position of privilege and power.

"So I left the studio immediately and our COVID security team had informed everyone that I had had contact", Ellen continued.

"When I heard COVID, I took off", Lassner confirmed from the audience. I spoke to my brother and told him about the back pain, he had a friend with the same then and then I spoke to several other people.

DeGeneres finished with a message to her viewers who are doing to tough during the pandemic. "My heart goes out to all of them", she said. "As always, I hope this show will give you some joy, brighten your day", she said.

The full story comes after DeGeneres had previously updated fans that she was "feeling 100 per cent" a week after her diagnosis. The show and its sponsors shower these people with a selection of gifts as a way of saying "thank you" for the important work they do. "I started to feel better, and I'm very fortunate and very, very blessed that that was it for me", she said.

And like that, The Ellen Show is back for 2021, despite the public fallout of its host past year - and reports that the show is bleeding advertisers, losing ratings and struggling to get celebrity bookings.
