Please, Santa!  

Oprah Winfrey (67) hosted a big welcoming party for Gayle King’s grandchild Luca on December 23. She had a very strict policy that her guests followed – one which even her closest friend did not follow. 

On Instagram, the celebrity stated that all Christmas guests must be tested and vaccined. ‘Stedman [Graham]Because I am so serious about this, it is called “The Policy”.

“This was the release day of our bubble, and we knew that we needed to host a celebration for Baby Luca (who none of us have met yet). She wrote it on Instagram. 

King, who is 67, couldn’t miss ‘The Policy.’ King was forced to miss the Lion King-themed party because she had not ‘completed the policy’. 

While it’s not known what missing step King was, she wrote that she didn’t receive her test results. It’s so. [I’m] cleared to join the group…so happy!’ 

The New York Daily News also suggested King’s busy schedule with CBS Mornings didn’t allow the news anchor enough time to quarantine in time for the party. 

Oprah did not specify whether her guests were required to remain in quarantine for the recommended 10-day Centers for Disease Control and Prevention time limit or for a shorter duration. The CDC decreased the quarantine period to five days Monday.
