Two hosts of ‘The View’ test positive for COVID-19 mid-show, leave before Harris interview
Half of the hosts of “The View” tested positive for COVID-19 and had to leave mid-show before a scheduled interview with Vice President Kamala Harris.
When the show returned from its first commercial break on Friday, a producer approached Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin and asked them to leave. Joy Behar then started to introduce Harris as the next guest, but a producer interrupted her and said, “No.”
The incident delayed the interview with the vice president, which was supposed to take up the majority of the show. The two remaining hosts, Behar and Sara Haines, fielded questions from the studio audience to fill the time until the show finished setting up a backstage video feed for Harris.
“Sunny and Ana are strong women and I know they’re fine, but it really also does speak to the fact that they’re vaccinated, and vaccines really make all the difference because we would be concerned about hospitalization or worse,” Harris said.
