Joy Behar is Taking Time Off From ‘The View’ Because of Coronavirus

The View cohost Joy Behar has announced that she’s taking time off from the show as a safety precaution against coronavirus.

According to Variety, she announced her decision Thursday during a pre-taped episode of The View that will air this morning, Friday. Reportedly, neither she nor any of the staff members that work on the ABC daytime talk show have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Still, Joy’s daughter apparently urged her to stay home as a safety measure.

“I’m in a higher risk group because of my age, but I’m perfectly healthy,” she said on the show. “I don’t look my age, but I’m actually up there. The number makes me dizzy.”

LOL! Well, it’s probably for the best. We’ll miss you, Joy.
