‘The Five’ co-hosts Dana Perino and Juan Williams are also quarantining after sharing a chartered plane with someone who later tested positive for the virus.

Fox News anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, Fox News president Jay Wallace and The Five co-hosts Dana Perino and Juan Williams are among those quarantining after a person they traveled with on a private plane later tested positive for COVID-19.

The New York Times reports that everyone on board a flight chartered by the channel from New York to Nashville last week have been advised to quarantine and get tested.

The final presidential debate was held Thursday, October 29, in Nashville, and many Fox on-air talent and staff were in attendance to cover the event.

A Fox News spokesperson directed inquiries to what they told the Times, that they could “not confirm any details of the exposure, citing the need to keep private health information confidential.”

The anchors are expected to continue hosting their shows remotely, per the Times.

The news of the quarantines come just 9 days before the presidential election, which Baier and MacCallum will anchor from its Manhattan headquarters.
