Guthrie originally started anchoring from home March 18, 2020, after reporting some cold like symptoms, but would eventually return to Studio 1A near 30 Rockefeller Plaza Tuesday, March 31, 2020.
She also co-anchored an NBC special that evening with Hoda Kotb.
Guthrie continued to anchor at the Studio 1A anchor desk — albeit socially distanced from Kotb — Wednesday, April 1, and Tuesday, April 2, 2020.
When Guthrie returned to her home setup, the digital background on the TV screen behind her was changed out.
Kotb has remained in Studio 1A with a barebones crew, since the coronavirus outbreak started.
On other networks, ABC “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts moved to a home studio starting March 25, 2020, while George Stephanopoulos began anchoring from home March 31, 2020, after his wife, comedian, Ali Wentworth began to exhibit COVID-19 symptoms (she would later test positive).
Mason had been anchoring from home since March 25, 2020, after a member of his family reported some symptoms of coronavirus.
