ST. LOUIS — 5 On Your Side's longtime anchor Mike Bush has been reporting on COVID-19 for weeks.

But this week – it became more personal. Bush shared that his daughter has symptoms and was tested for the coronavirus on Thursday.

“We don’t have the results back yet, so we are still crossing our fingers, but her doctor told her she’d bet money my daughter has it,” Bush wrote. “The frustrating part is that there is nothing we can do.”
