Whoopi Goldberg has joined the list of American citizens affected by the fast-spreading Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus.
During Monday’s episode, The View co-host Joy Behar revealed Goldberg’s test positive and that she has mild symptoms. Goldberg is vaccinated and also received a booster vaccination. The rest of the cast filmed the show from remote locations.
“They say there’s no place like home for the holidays and that’s where we are this year,” said Behar. “Happy New Year from all of our living rooms. As you can see we’re back in boxes doing the show remotely – hopefully just for a week, I pray it’s just a week but you never know because that omicron thing is everywhere. “
