At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States in March 2020, Savannah took time off from working in the Today studio to work from home when she experienced a runny nose and sore throat. She posted on Instagram that she had stayed home at the time on the advice of NBC officials and medical staff.
Savannah felt healthy otherwise, but for the sake of her co-hosts, she took the time to stay home and avoid potentially spreading anything to them if she was in the studio. She eventually returned to the studio, but then things changed again the next month.
In April 2020, Savannah made the decision to work from home on a more long-term basis after having returned to the studio. At the time, she explained to co-host Hoda Kotb that she chose to work from home again because she wanted to abide by the state regulations set in place and keep her family safe at the same time.
“You know the reason, Hoda,” she told her on Today, of her decision. “My family is upstate, and so I’m sticking close to the family and coming to the city less and less. So I’m trying to work from home. And also, frankly, that’s what these officials are telling us to do, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do.’
