Gayle King Ends Two-Week Coronavirus Quarantine in Oprah’s Guest House

Gayle King and her CBS This Morning team ended their 14-day quarantine in Oprah Winfrey’s guest house on Thursday after testing negative for COVID-19.

King and her production team traveled from New York to film their morning show at Winfrey’s Santa Barbara estate. Because of the media mogul’s strict social distancing rules, each individual had to test negative for coronavirus before leaving the guest house.

The CBS This Morning co-host shared the moment on Instagram when she first emerged from quarantine and embraced her longtime friend.

“Quarantine ‘ovah’! We got our covid results & @Oprah had us over for a “freedom dinner” a good time was had by all…” King captioned her post.

Winfrey also shared video of their reunion on Instagram and captioned her post: “After 13 and a half days quarantined in my guest house, @gayleking and her @cbsthismorning team released from Covid quarantine.”

A Thursday post on the O Magazine Instagram account said Winfrey has been following strict stay-at-home guidelines since the coronavirus outbreak began.

“Oprah has not left her house since March 11. She had pneumonia last fall, followed by a bronchial infection in February, and is 66 — all good reasons to be extra careful during a pandemic,” the post said.
