Susanna Reid self-isolates due to symptoms in her family
Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid didn’t join us in the studio today because she’s self-isolating - but don’t worry, she’s feeling well but staying at home for two weeks due to symptoms in her household.
This comes after the new government advice - with Boris Johnson telling anyone with a continuous cough or a high temperature to stay at home for 14 days.
She explained: "One of the boys, one of my children has a persistent cough and that came on yesterday.
"Before the briefing yesterday afternoon, the advice had been, as we’d been discussing on the programme that the person themselves would be confined to the house for seven days.
"Everyone else, as long as they kept their distance could go about their business.
"Well, suddenly with these new drastic action measures that changed yesterday afternoon and it meant if even one member of your household had either the persistent cough or a fever, then you would all have to go into self-isolation for 14 days, so that means immediately I can’t go into work and work with you guys for 14 days."
