Emmy's 2020: Giuliana Rancic will miss out on the show due to contracting Coronavirus

The Emmy's Red Carpet veteran admitted her whole family has been infected.

In an unexpected turn of events E News! reporter Giuliana Rancic has confirmed she will not be attending TV's night of nights after testing positive to Coronavirus.

The 46-year-old revealed in a video message obtained by E! News Giuliana said she, her husband Bill and their son Duke have tested positive for coronavirus.

"Hey, everyone. As I go into my 20th year on the E! red carpet I have to say I do not take missing an award show lightly, but unfortunately this year is just so different," began her announcement.

"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."

Rancic continued, "As far as my health, I'm doing well. My husband Bill and our son [Duke] also did test positive, but we're all doing well and taking care each other so I'm going to get back to doing that. But I just want to say I'm wishing you all the best and please protect yourselves and protect those around you. Take good care and I'll see you on the next red carpet."
