Hollywood icon Whoopi Goldberg (who these days chats it up on The View) has tested positive for COVID-19. According to Joy Behar (who confirmed such from home) the show is being recorded from home until further notice over the diagnosis. Behar confirmed the news during the most recently available episode.
“They say there’s no place like home for the holidays and that’s exactly where we are this year,” Behar said of the show’s panelists. “Happy New Year from all of our living rooms. As you can see we’re back in boxes and doing the show remotely, hopefully for just a week, I’m praying that it’s just a week but you never know because this omicron thing is all over the place.”
She continued: “Why am I here instead of Whoopi? Well, Whoopi, unfortunately, tested positive over the break but she’ll be back probably next week. Since she’s vaxxed and boosted, her symptoms have been very, very, mild. But we’re being super cautious here at ‘The View.'”
