Fox Business Network anchor Liz Claman, who normally hosts a show at 3 p.m., is temporarily off the air and in quarantine after a member of her team tested positive for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Claman, however, beamed into her show — The Claman Countdown — from her home on Monday.
“She is fine,” said fill-in anchor Cheryl Casone. “She is one of the finest, healthiest people I know. This is all out of an abundance of caution.”
In a brief appearance on Monday, Claman told viewers that she is six days from returning to the air, based on the amount of time that has transpired since she last encountered the infected employee. “I miss you guys,” she said.
On Friday night, anchor David Asman replaced Lou Dobbs after a member of Dobbs’ team also tested positive. “We fully support that employee 100 percent, who we all wish a speedy recovery,” Asman said. “Lou feels well, he has no symptoms, but out of an abundance of caution, he and his team are taking the necessary precautions.”
Fox Business anchor Charles Payne, who normally hosts Making Money, is also off the air and in quarantine. On Monday, he beamed into his show via a remote feed. He will do the same on Tuesday.
A total of four Fox News Media employees have tested positive for the virus, according to a Saturday memo from the network.
