Vice President Kamala Harris’ scheduled live appearance on “The View” was delayed Friday morning after two co-hosts tested positive for the coronavirus, their colleague Joy Behar told the show’s viewers.
Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were vaccinated against COVID-19 and apparently experienced “breakthrough” infections, Behar said.
Both women left the set, which was cleaned during an unplanned commercial break, she said.
Behar and co-host Sara Haines then repeatedly stalled for time by taking questions from the audience while arrangements were being made to have Harris appear remotely from a room inside the building.
“The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe,” Behar said.
They said Harris would do the interview remotely from within the same studio out of caution.
