Hartford Anchor Duo Quarantines After Positive Covid-19 Test

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Hartford, Conn. anchor Kara Sundlun is in quarantine and off the air after she tested positive for Covid-19.

“Friends I have some news to share, I have tested positive for Covid-19,” Sundlun, a veteran anchor for WFSB‘s Better Connecticut, wrote on Facebook. “After reporting on this story for 9 months it seems surreal that I am now one of the numbers. Ironically, I found out on the day the first vaccine was given.”

Sundlun shared an image of her positive Covid-19 test less than a week after sharing that she had come down with what she thought at the time was a cold.


The anchor says her husband, former WFSB anchor Dennis House, and their two children have so far tested negative, but are quarantining to be safe. Better Connecticut anchor and morning meteorologist Scot Haney is also quarantining, but is continuing to report remotely.

It’s the latest Covid-related disruption at the station in recent weeks. Anchor Erin Connolly was off the air in late November after one of her children tested positive for Covid-19.

Sundlun says she will continue providing updates as she recovers.
