Whoopi Goldberg still missing from The View

Whoopi Goldberg is still absent from The View.

Surprised viewers first took notice on Monday’s (14 November) episode when both Goldberg and co-host Joy Behar weren’t present, leaving co-host Sara Haines to take charge.

Typically, when one is out, the other takes the moderator’s seat.

However, during Tuesday’s broadcast, co-host Behar returned, announcing that “unfortunately, Whoopi is out with Covid”.

“So rest up and get back here miss, when you feel better,” she said as she took the seat usually occupied by Goldberg.

On Thursday’s (17 November) programming, Goldberg once again remained absent, with Behar reiterating that the EGOT winner was still out with Covid.

Co-host Sunny Hostin was also missing, but Behar seemed unsure why.

This marks the second time Goldberg has tested positive for Covid.

The View airs weekdays on 11am ET on ABC.
