Vivica Foxx tests positive for Covid-19… withdraws from co-hosting Emmys pre-show

Actress Vivica A Foxx has tested positive for Covid-19, forcing her to miss this year’s edition of Live From the Red Carpet: The 2020 Emmy Awards, which she was supposed to host.

“I am terribly sorry I cannot be with my E! family tonight!” Fox, 56, said in a statement during the Emmys 2020 pre-show. “Unfortunately, I have tested positive for coronavirus. So, in an abundance of caution, I am isolating myself at home.”

She continued, “During these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever that we follow all safety and health rules and guidelines to protect ourselves and each other.”

The actress sent her wishes to Nina Parker and Brad Goreski, who ended up hosting the red carpet event in her place.

“Congratulations to all of tonight’s nominees. I look forward to seeing everyone again soon,” her note read.
