Roberts' doctor, Dr. Gail Roboz, appeared on Tuesday's GMA. The anchor told her doc:

I heard your advice and because of what is going on in New York City, this will be my last day in the studio for a little bit and I will do like everyone else. It is hard to leave because you want the normalcy. You want it not just for yourself but for our viewers.
