JoJo Fletcher to Step in for Chris Harrison During Bachelorette Host's 2-Week COVID-19 Quarantine

The upcoming season of The Bachelorette will be one for the books.

Less than two weeks after multiple sources told PEOPLE that Tayshia Adams was replacing Clare Crawley as the season 16 lead, a host shakeup is on the horizon as well.

According to Entertainment Weekly and E! News, former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher, 29, will temporarily take over Chris Harrison's hosting duties while he undergoes a mandatory two-week quarantine after dropping off his son at college in Texas.

Per EW, once Harrison, 49, returned to California, where the The Bachelorette is currently filming, he was required to quarantine as part of the production's safety precautions amid the coronavirus pandemic. His girlfriend, Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima, also tweeted an article about his quarantine, writing, "Chris Harrison missed some filming of #TheBachelorette."

Reps for ABC did not respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

"Tayshia was game and ready to go," the source said. "What remains to be seen is if more men will be brought in now to give Tayshia a full roster of suitors."

A premiere date for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette has not yet been announced.

Us Weekly first reported the news of Fletcher replacing Harrison.
