Savannah Guthrie, NBC’s anchor of The Today Show, said she is self-isolating and will host the show from home tomorrow.

She stated the move was purely precautionary in light of the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) across the world. Guthrie said she’s developed a “mild sore throat and runny nose.”

On Tuesday night, she posted two images to Instagram of her makeshift studio that’s been constructed at her home.

She wrote: “Hi everybody! Well, this will be a first. I’m going to be anchoring TODAY from my house!”

Guthrie continued: “In an abundance of caution, and to model the super vigilance the CDC has asked of all of us, I’m staying home.”

She also said she was taking the advice of “NBC’s superb medical team,” and that of her bosses.
