Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb


After 15 months of being six feet apart, the morning co-hosts were able to return to their regular setup on the TODAY show amid new CDC rules.

If this is any indication we are close to getting back to a pre-COVID lifestyle, we are here for it.

The two hosts opened their show on Friday, May 14 in brighter spirits than usual- and on top of each other!

"Two vaccinated people! Does the CDC say anything about me sitting on your lap?"

Both Savannah and Hoda are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and celebrated being able to push their desks back together for the first time since March 2020. Savannah said:

"How long have we been waiting for this moment?"

The co-anchors rejoiced today amid new CDC guidances that were released on Thursday, May 13. The rule says Americans who are fully vaccinated against the virus can be both indoors and outdoors without masks or social distancing in most cases. They also said in a statement:

"The science is clear: If you are fully vaccinated, you are protected, and you can start doing the things that you stopped doing because of the pandemic.

With this announcement, we are definitely looking forward to more of these kind of moments going forward!
