Nova’s Chrissie Swan and Jonathan Brown have covid

Chrissie Swan and Jonathan Brown both have covid and were off air today.

The third member of Nova’s Melbourne team, Sam Pang, has so far missed out on being infected, despite playing golf with Brownie on the weekend.

Nova quickly shut down the Melbourne studios with neither Nova or smoothfm breakfast teams live on-air this morning. Staff have been told to get tested before returning to work.

Chrissie Swan told her Instagram followers:

“Turns out I didn’t escape Covid after all. After feeling a bit tired and flat I took a test and it’s come back positive. I feel basically fine so far – worst is the fatigue (though I think I’ve been tired for 20 years so I’m match fit).” 

A NOVA Entertainment spokesperson said, “We are responding to a positive COVID case in our Melbourne office. Our COVID safety and response plan, which aligns with all current Victoria Government health advice and prioritises the safety of our staff, has been implemented.”
