“The View” co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro have been approved to return to the ABC daytime talk show after false positives for COVID-19 tests caused the show’s producers to yank the two from the set just moments before an interview with Vice President Kamala Harris.
The co-hosts’ positive test results were announced live on air Friday moments after their removal.
However, one show insider said officials at ABC’s parent company Disney said the co-hosts have since been cleared to come to work Monday, with no quarantining requirements, the New York Post’s Page Six reported.
Hostin and Navarro were incensed their coronavirus results were announced on-air without their permission.
“It was not OK,” another insider said, Page Six reported. “They made the decision to reveal their COVID-19 results in the heat of the moment when they should’ve gone to a commercial break.”
