“I have caught coronavirus,” the new York-based journalist said on Twitter. “I am blessed in that I have few symptoms – just a cough. I am saving my prayers and thoughts for those less fortunate. Stay in. And protect lives.”
Quest joins several of his CNN colleagues who have contracted the virus.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, the brother of New York governor Andrew Cuomo, had the coronavirus diagnosed at the end of March but continued to anchor his evening program from home.
Anchor Brooke Baldwin, who also worked out of CNN’s New York offices, announced in early April that she had tested positive.
