Behar, 77, reportedly announced that she would be taking time off from the show at a Thursday taping of an episode that will run Friday. Like several other live shows, "The View" has chosen to not allow studio audiences until the spread of the virus subsides. 

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

Neither Behar nor any of the staff on the talk show have tested positive for the virus, and the remaining co-hosts — including Whoopi GoldbergWhoopi GoldbergOn The Money: Treasury, SBA to disclose small business loans of 0K and above | Apple closes stores in states with spikes in coronavirus cases | Artists call on Congress to help club and concert venues during pandemic Artists join call to Congress to help club and concert venues during pandemic Joy Behar walks back remark calling Trump a 'domestic terrorist' on 'The View' MORE, Meghan McCainMeghan Marguerite McCainMeghan McCain asks Mary Trump if she wrote a tell-all for the paycheck Democratic congresswomen: Yoho's apology to Ocasio-Cortez not 'enough' Trump mocked for low attendance at rally MORE and Sunny HostinSunny HostinSunny Hostin responds to ABC exec's alleged 'racist' remarks about her Chris Wallace to 'The View': Trump had a 'very bad week' for his reelection prospects Chris Christie says US can't allow virus to control reopening timeline MORE — will continue to appear.
