On Monday's The View, co-host Joy Behar explained moderator Goldberg's absence by revealing Goldberg tested positive for COVID over the holidays.
"Whoopi unfortunately tested positive over the break," Behar explained. "Since she's vaxxed and boosted, her symptoms have been very, very mild."
She said Goldberg would "be back probably next week," adding that the ABC talk show is "being super cautious" about COVID amid the surge.
