False alarm: Kamala Harris ‘The View’ interview delayed over false-positive COVID tests
A highly-anticipated live appearance on “The View” by Vice President Kamala Harris was repeatedly delayed after two co-hosts tested positive for COVID-19 and left the set mid-show Friday. As it turns out, the kerfuffle was all for nothing, as a source told The Post that the results were false positives.
The source said the positive results came from tests administered on Thursday, and two rounds of follow-ups were negative. It is unclear why the results from Thursday’s tests weren’t passed along until mid-show on Friday morning.
Joy Behar promoted the appearance as Harris’ “very first, in-studio” interview. She initially told viewers that the vice president would still appear in person after the set was cleaned during a commercial break.
However, the appearance became fully remote as Harris videoed in from another room in the building with eight minutes left in the show’s runtime.
