So far Cuomo is feeling well and is scheduled to continue anchoring “Cuomo Prime Time” from home.
“I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath,” Cuomo wrote in a tweet. “I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
Cuomo is married to Cristina Greeven and they have three children.
Cuomo was last in the network’s Hudson Yards headquarters Friday but anchored from home Monday, March 30, 2020 — when he interviewed his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Chris Cuomo setup a studio in his basement — where he plans to remain isolated from this family.

This marks the third case of a CNN employee contracting the virus.
Since the first case, the network has worked to transition to remote work setups for most staffers and switching to using home TV studios or smaller setups at network facilities that require minimal (or no) crew.
