CNN anchor Chris Cuomo debuted his emergence from his basement quarantine in an Instagram video Monday.

But Twitter users were quick to point it wasn’t the first time Cuomo came out of his basement since contracting coronavirus. Social media posters referred to an incident on Easter Sunday where Cuomo got into an argument with a bicyclist outside his Hamptons home. 

The news anchor was socializing with his family outside when the cyclist told him, “Your brother is the coronavirus czar, and you’re not even following his rules,” according to the New York Post. 

The Instagram video indicates Cuomo had spent three weeks away from his family in his basement while he fought off of the coronavirus. 

He announced he was officially cleared by the CDC and able to head upstairs.  

“This is what I've been dreaming of, literally, for weeks,” he said, as greeted his wife and kids.

Cuomo announced he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 31. He isolated himself in his basement and shared video updates on his fight against the virus.

He wasn’t the only one given a clean bill of health. He announced his wife also was cleared by the CDC on the social media video. She, too, was diagnosed with coronavirus. 

"She doesn't have a fever, she doesn't have the symptoms anymore, she's 7 days from quarantine," Cuomo said. 

He didn’t give his kids a hug, opting to give them a hello "hang 10" gesture from a distance.

"This is the dream, just to be back up here doing normal things," he said.

He thanked his children for stepping up to help take care of things around the house while he and his wife were sick. 

"So anyway, I'm back, let's get after it," he said as he signed off from the video.
