(TargetLiberty.org) – Fox News chief political anchor, Bret Baier, is going into quarantine after being exposed to someone with coronavirus. Three other anchors and Fox president Jay Wallace are also affected. The team had been in Nashville, TN, for the October 22 presidential debate. They returned to New York on a charter flight – then found out another passenger had tested positive for the virus.
The president of Fox News and several of the network’s top anchors were advised to quarantine after taking a private flight with someone who later tested positive for the coronavirus, two people with direct knowledge of the situation said on Sunday. https://t.co/LzMMgBoNSt

As well as Baier and Wallace, “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum and “The Five” hosts Dana Perino and Juan Williams will be self-isolating until Fox bosses are sure they haven’t caught the virus. Until they get a clean bill of health, they’ll be presenting their shows from home; Baier confirmed this on Fox radio on Monday.
Fox said Monday there have been “a few positive” tests among staff who were on the flight, but they’re withholding details for privacy reasons. They also said they’ve enhanced safety procedures at their New York HQ, with only critical personnel scheduled to be there on election night.
