(CBS/AP) Tracy Morgan has been released from a hospital after collapsing during the Sundance Film Festival, and he says he'll be back at work Tuesday.

The comedian's rep said Morgan left Monday after treatment for exhaustion and altitude illness at the Park City Medical Center. He  was taken there Sunday night  after he collapsed at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where the elevation is 7,000 feet.

Morgan confirmed the news on Twitter and added, "Gotta thank the AMAZING medical staff and all my supporters! Love you."

The New York native was in good spirits and happy about the New York Giants win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. "#GOgiants," he tweeted.

Morgan posted a comment Monday that the high altitude "shook up this kid from Brooklyn."

Ron Nyswaner, co-director of the Sundance film "Predisposed," in which the actor stars, said Morgan's collapse resulted from "altitude sickness combined with his diabetes. And he hadn't eaten. He hadn't had enough water."

Hospital officials reported no drugs or alcohol were found in Morgan's system, according to Morgan's publicist.

Morgan had been attending an event for the Creative Coalition at which he had just received an award.
