After revealing to his fans earlier in the day on Instagram that he had tested positive for COVID over the holidays, Jimmy Fallon took to the airwaves for Monday’s Tonight Show, where he expanded on how the events affected his wife and daughters who had driven upstate, while he quarantined in New York City.

“My girls tested positive as well,” Fallon said. “They're fine, everyone is fine they had the sniffles. Frannie had sniffles for like two days. Winnie had no symptoms at all.”

And along with the relief of his family being ok, it turned out that Fallon’s unfortunate holiday surprise was wrapped in a silver lining.

“But, that meant I could go home and spend the holidays with the kids, so I did,” Fallon said. “It was a Christmas miracle.”

And Fallon, who has said he is vaccinated and boosted, echoed his Instagram message during his comments on Monday night by once again thanking all the doctors and nurses who are working hard to get people vaccinated, and encouraging people to get vaccinated if they haven’t already.

And so, you know, but so they went to, they went upstate with the girls. You know, and I just kind of sat, just isolated.
