ESPN college football analyst Desmond Howard announces he’s tested positive for coronavirus

ESPN college football analyst Desmond Howard announced Thursday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

“I’m under strict quarantine right now, because yesterday I tested positive for COVID,” Howard said in a video posted to Twitter.

Howard detailed that he’s experiencing a cough and muscle soreness but has not had a fever.

“You have to take this very seriously, because it’s a very tricky virus — extremely unpredictable and tricky virus,” Howard said. “So you have to continue to do all the things that you can to maintain your health even if you start to feel good.”

Howard tweeted that he will be doing College GameDay from home this week and not at Penn State, where the 18th-ranked Nittany Lions will host No. 3 Ohio State.

This is not the first time College GameDay has had an analyst do the show remotely this season because of coronavirus protocols. In September, Kirk Herbstreit came in contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus. Although Herbstreit tested negative, he was not on the road with the show when Miami hosted Florida State, but he still appeared on College GameDay and was a part of the game broadcast.

“Never happened before. Probably just a coincidence,” he added:

“I’m sure it’s just a communications failure. Or not,” Jarrett conspiratorially wrote in later posts:

Jarrett’s tweets went viral for all the wrong reasons as politicians, journalists and others responded in various mocking ways:
