Vivica A. Fox and Giuliana Rancic both pulled out of hosting the Emmys virtual red carpet event on Sunday night after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 56-year-old Kill Bill actress and Rancic, 46, were slated to co-host E! TV's Live From the Red Carpet show, but both released statements just before the special went live, explaining they had contracted the coronavirus.

"I am terribly sorry I cannot be with my E! family tonight!" Vivica wrote. "Unfortunately, I have tested positive for the coronavirus. So, in an abundance of caution I am isolating myself at home. During these unprecedented times, it's more important than ever that we follow all safety and health rules and guidelines to protect ourselves and each other."

Rancic added: "As part of E! and NBCUniversal's very strict testing guidelines, especially before an event like this, I did find out that I tested positive for COVID-19.

"Now as much as I didn't want to hear that, I'm very thankful I heard it before I traveled and possibly could have exposed other people. So for that, I'm thankful... Take good care and I'll see you on the next red carpet."

Like most celebrities who use the coronavirus for PR, neither Vivica nor Giuliana are sick, but both claim to have "mild" symptoms.
