The COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on.
This time around, Whoopi Goldberg is the latest celebrity to test positive for the virus.
Her ‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar announced the news on January 3, where she explained the legendary actress was experiencing “mild” symptoms after being vaccinated and receiving her booster shot.
“Why am I here instead of Whoopi? Well, Whoopi, unfortunately, tested positive over the break but she’ll be back probably next week. Since she’s vaxxed and boosted, her symptoms have been very, very, mild. But we’re being super cautious here at ‘The View.’”
Elsewhere, fellow co-host Sunny Hostin also shared that she and her mom both tested positive, but both have since recovered.
