Fresno Anchor Catches Covid for Second Time

By Kevin Eck 

Fresno, Calif. morning anchor Caroline Collins said she is off the air because of a second Covid-19 infection.

“I’ve been off all week with Covid,” the KSEE anchor said on social media. “I’m so blessed to be feeling OK! I know this isn’t the case for so many. The last round of Covid I had a year and a half ago put me in the hospital with a heart issue called ‘pericarditis.’”

Collins said she expects to return this week.

In a TikTok she made talking about her diagnosis, she said Covid came with “a series of phone calls to people who I may have exposed, my boss at KSEE24 News and—of course—a panic attack.”

Collins has worked at the Fresno NBC station since December 2020.
