Sara Haines Off ‘The View’ Today After Close Contact With Covid

The View is down another co-host today, with panelist Sara Haines absent due to having come into close contact with Covid.

The announcement was made by co-host Joy Behar at the start of today’s episode. Yesterday, Behar announced that moderator Whoopi Goldberg had tested positive for Covid during the holiday break and would be off probably until next week.

“Sara was in close contact, so she’s not here. It’s like Agatha Christie, ‘And then there were three,” Behar said, also noting that Haines “feels fine” but that she’s “laying low today.” Haines appeared remotely from home on The View yesterday.

Haines’ seat was filled today by fill-in co-host Yvette Nicole Brown. Today’s panel was rounded out by co-hosts Sunny Hostin and guest co-host Ana Navarro. All the panelists appeared remotely from their homes. (Hostin has confirmed that she had Covid over the holiday break but has recovered.)

The cases come amid the Omicron variant’s surge in New York City and throughout the nation. Goldberg missed the Dec. 15 and 16 episodes of The View after being exposed to Covid (she appeared on the show’s pre-taped Dec. 17 holiday episode).
