Joy Behar taking time off ‘The View’ due to coronavirus worries

Co-host Joy Behar will take some time off from “The View” due to concerns over coronavirus, reports Variety.

Behar, 77, announced her decision on a segment of the show taped March 12 but will air March 13 (“The View” and other talk shows often tape Friday editions on Thursday).

“The View” has already stopped allowing a studio audience on set.

Behar is the oldest member of “The View” regular panel, with moderator Whoopi Goldberg second at 64.
