For months, it seemed that the fate of The Ellen DeGeneres Show was in limbo. "I wish I could have hugged each of you, but it's probably unsafe and illegal".
The Ellen DeGeneres Show returned on Wednesday - more than a month after the host fell ill with COVID-19. "Although I did wear crocs with socks for a day so you be the judge". "And then, like on the fourth day, I woke up with back spasms, and I thought I'd pulled a muscle", DeGeneres said. "The steroid pack worked, but here's the thing with steroids: They make you feel really fast and really pissed off".

At the time, the talk show host said she was following all guidelines put forward by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control about managing and preventing the spread of the coronavirus.
"I was in hair and makeup... and then my assistant Craig walks in and says, 'You tested positive for COVID, '" DeGeneres said. In the new episode of The Ellen Show, she spoke candidly about those symptoms and the shocking way she found out she had COVID-19. Her efforts added a little fun into a challenging school year and provided recognition for the work teachers do across the world, in Dublin and at Murray. I don't know if it's the best way, I'm not a doctor. "And then everyone around me ran away".

Eventually, though, DeGeneres said she was able to get treatment for her back pain, and didn't experience any other common coronavirus symptoms like fever, headache, or loss of taste. So the best thing to do I decided was to stay on the muscle relaxers and pain pills with the steroid pack to balance it out. It was like I had cracked a rib... you know what I make you feel when you laugh so hard that your ribs hurt? I wash my hands.
Warner Bros. Television, the studio behind DeGeneres' show, also had six staff members with positive COVID-19 test results in the days before DeGeneres announced her positive test, according to Los Angeles' Department of Public Health.
She continued, "I left the studio immediately and our COVID safety team informed everyone that I had been in contact with. I only lick three or four handles", she quipped.More news: 'Freaks And Geeks' star Jessica Campbell dies l
"I know a lot of people out there are struggling with this illness right now. That's how it felt - I finally understand how you feel". The comedian still considers herself very fortunate. "I'm feeling 100 per cent, I feel really good", she said in a video shared on her Twitter, adding that she was in "excruciating back pain".
