Ellen DeGeneres ditches mask as she's seen out for the first time since recovering from 'excruciating' Covid-19 battle

ELLEN DeGeneres ditched her mask as she was seen out for the first time since recovering from her "excruciating" battle with Covid-19.

The 62-year-old was recently spotted picking up home goods from Garde in Montecito, CA.



Ellen wore baggy gray pants, a button-up shirt and slipper sandals during the outing.

She also sported a patterned mask, though wore it around her neck at certain points throughout the day.

The talk show host appeared serious as she carried boxes to her car and spoke on her phone.

Earlier this month the TV personality revealed to her fans that she tested positive for the virus writing: "I want to let you all know that I tested positive for Covid-19.

"Fortunately, I'm feeling fine right now. Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines."


She added: "I'll see you all again after the holidays. Please stay healthy and safe."

Ellen later updated her fans by sharing a snap that showed her cuddling with her beloved dog, Wally.

The host appeared sick in the photo, which she captioned it: "Thank you for all of your sweet messages. They’re helping a lot. Wally is helping too."

The TV personality previously revealed to her fans: "I want to let you all know that I tested positive for Covid-19.

"Fortunately, I'm feeling fine right now. Anyone who has been in close contact with me has been notified, and I am following all proper CDC guidelines."


She continued to update her fans as she shared a clip of herself playing Connect Four with her wife Portia de Rossi, 47.

After thanking everyone that sent her well wishes while she was sick, she said: "I appreciate it very much."

She then discussed how she's feeling, stating: "I'm feeling 100%. I feel really good.

"One thing that they don't tell you is you get, somehow, excruciating back pain. Didn't know that that was a symptom, but I talked to some other people. Back pain. Who knew? How come?"

While Ellen's show won't return until 2021, the program hasn't exactly been reeling in the most notable names.

A staff member previously claimed to BuzzFeed: “For the first time, everyone was starting to ask us, ‘If you have an idea, tell us because we will listen. If you have an idea for a celeb, even if they’re not A-list or famous, we’ll take anyone who will bring us numbers and eyeballs.’”
