NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Joy Behar won't be sharing her opinions on "The View" for a while, Variety reports.

The 77-year-old co-host of the long-running talk show made the announcement during a pre-recorded episode set to air Friday.

Behar has not tested positive for coronavirus, nor have any other members of the staff, but made the decision at the urging of her daughter, Eve.

"I’m in a higher risk group because of my age, but I’m perfectly healthy," Behar said on the show. 

It's not clear when Behar will be back.

The three other co-hosts will remain on the show until further notice.
