Joy Behar disclosed the news on the program Monday.
“Whoopi unfortunately tested positive over the break, but she will hopefully be back next week,” Behar said. “Since she is vaxxed and boosted, her symptoms have been very, very mild, but we are being super cautious here at The View.”
Behar added that the show may “check in” on Goldberg at some point this week.
Goldberg wasn’t the only co-host to grapple with the virus over the holidays.
Sunny Hostin said she tested positive for COVID-19 before Christmas.
“I am so thankful that I was vaccinated and boosted, because I just had cold-like symptoms, but I didn’t feel great,” Hostin said.
