Whoopi Goldberg Taking a Break From ‘The View’ After Testing Positive for COVID-19

This week, ABC’s The View is without one of its co-hosts after Whoopi Goldberg tested positive for COVID-19.

Joy Behar announced the news on her show on Monday.

Behar also mentioned that the program could “check-in” on Goldberg later this week.

Goldberg was not the only co-host who had to deal with the flu during the holidays.

Sunny Hostin said that she tested positive with COVID-19 just before Christmas.

Ana Navarro also stated that her father tested positive for COVID during the holidays, leaving her refrigerator “overflowing” with food. 

Sara Haines’ husband had the infection as well, requiring her and her children to be quarantined when they returned after visiting her parents during the holidays.

The hosts all appeared remotely on the show since the omicron version has forced TV productions to reconsider their procedures in recent weeks.
