The latest: Joy Behar, 77, is taking a break from The View amid the spread of the coronavirus. She said Thursday, 'I'm in a higher risk group because of my age, but I'm perfectly healthy'

Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain and Sunny Hostin will continue to do the show, which will not have a live studio audience presence, a widespread industry practice amid the outbreak of the international ailment.

On the show, Behar said her daughter Eve, 49, convinced her to take the safety first approach.

She said she will be off of the show for at least one week, then will reevaluate her decision. 

The decision from the veteran comic and TV personality comes as officials are urging people to work from home, and avoid clustering in groups as a means of containing the virus.
