Stephen A. Smith Announces He’s Tested Positive For COVID-19, But Still Does First Take

I think rational people knew there was going to be a surge.

As soon as things started to open back up and more people were vaccinated, there was also a solid chance, just like any other virus. It would come back around. The good news this time is hospitals and doctors know how better to treat for it, and if you have been vaccinated, the chances of you dying and becoming seriously ill are a lot less.

Stephen A. should have taken the day off, though. He still came to work even though you can tell he isn’t feeling well via SI.

ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith announced Tuesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Smith said on First Take that he learned of his positive result over the weekend.

“I’m feeling fine. Mild symptoms,” Smith said while working remotely Tuesday. “Thank God I was vaccinated. Thank God I got the Pfizer vaccine, two shots a few months ago.”

He added that he has not yet received a COVID-19 booster shot.

It is important to remember that a vaccine isn’t a cure. It is just in place to ensure you don’t have a severe reaction to the virus. Think of it like this, Tylenol doesn’t cure headaches, it eases them. Also, just because you are vaccinated doesn’t mean you aren’t contagious. That is no different than getting the flu shot.

If you got the flu shot but still got the flu, you should keep your behind at home so to make sure you aren’t spreading it to your family, friends, and co-workers.

It should be noted that Stephen A. is working remotely, so he isn’t putting anyone in danger by appearing on First Take this morning, but he should take it easy.
