In a video he posted on social media, Houston says it took three weeks from his initial test to recover, but he’s lucky to feel better.
“Let’s keep our grocery store workers in our prayers, healthcare workers, first responders; we all need it right now,” he said.
Houston encouraged viewers to heed warnings and stay inside, but to also recognize that more people are recovering from COVID-19 than dying from it.
“Sometimes we need to find that good news and hold onto it,” he said.
Houston anchored the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. shows for the first time after contracting the virus on April 4.
I’d like to say thanks to everybody who reached out in the past few weeks.
My doctor gave me a clean bill of health and is allowing me to go back to work after testing positive for COVID 19 almost three weeks ago.
Thanks for the love and your continued prayers!
See you soon! pic.twitter.com/cAEBKDCVAj
