The Good Morning Britain host will not appear as a precaution on Monday.
But the controversial television personality said he would return to work if his results returned unequivocally.
He went to Twitter on Sunday evening to say that he has been feeling bad for about two days and that he has been tested for the COVID-19 virus, reports ChronicleLive.
Morgan tweeted: “On medical advice, and out of caution for a slight symptom that has appeared in the past 48 hours, I have had a test for COVID-19 so I will not be working on [Good Morning Britain] until I get the result, which should be tomorrow. ”
The government is making NHS tests for the virus available to all key workers who cannot do their jobs from home.
Journalists and broadcasters are classified as “essential workers” in government directives.
Morgan has been one of the most vocal and opinionated voices in criticizing the government’s response to the pandemic.
