Amanda Kloots, who lost her husband to COVID-19, is testing positive

Amanda Kloots, co-host of the CBS talk show “The Talk” in the daytime, announced on Thursday via Instagram that she was tested positive for COVID-19.

Kloots’ announcement comes almost two years after her husband, the Broadway actress Nick Cordero, died in July 2020 after a long battle against COVID-19. Cordero suffered lung infections and septic shock and was placed in a medically induced coma after one amputation of legs.

Kloots, who diligently portrayed Cordero’s fight against the virus, assured her followers that she was receiving the coronavirus vaccine and a booster and that she would be back on the show as soon as her quarantine is over.

“I feel completely normal now and feel very grateful for it,” Kloots wrote on Instagram.

A CBS representative had no further comment on Kloots’ return to the show when he arrived on Friday.

Kloots said she was surprised by her positive test after testing negative before and after a recent trip to Mexico.

“This is the first time I have tested positive since the pandemic,” Kloots said, adding: “I hope to be back at work soon, but taking this time home with me. [son] Elvis has to start potty training. Wish me luck as I run after a naked toddler for the next three days. “

Kloots’ fans flooded her post with heartfelt wishes, and the Instagram account for “The Talk” also commented: “It’s not the same without you ❤️ We can not wait for you to return after quarantine!”
