It’s been a hectic day on the set of The View on Friday, Sept. 24, as the hosts were prepping for an interview with Vice President Kamala Harris and discovered two of the ladies, unfortunately, tested positive for COVID-19.

As reported by TMZ, hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were asked to step off stage during a commercial break just as they were getting ready to welcome Harris onto the show. Both women say they’re vaccinated, so there didn’t seem to be too much panic in regards to their health. However, there was definitely a shake-up, and Harris had to instead call in via video from her green room instead of appearing on stage alongside the remaining hosts.

Host Joy Behar confirmed that Hostin and Navarro had to leave because they had tested positive, and explained to Harris that’s why the show had to make sure the VP was in a safe place to do the interview. In the clip below, which was also shared by TMZ, Harris stresses the importance of getting vaccinated.

Elsewhere in the interview, Harris spoke about the country pulling out of Afghanistan, Border Patrol at the United States-Mexico border, and the abortion laws in Texas, addressing the latter of which by promising to, “fight for women’s constitutional rights to make decisions about their own body.”

According to an update from TMZ, Hostin and Navarro took rapid tests after receiving their COVID-19 diagnosis and they both tested negative. Reportedly, they’ll have to be tested more times before returning to their hosting jobs.

We’ve seen many people — celebrities and individuals in our own lives — test positive for COVID-19 even after being vaccinated. As Harris said in the interview today, it’s imperative to be vaccinated to help stop the spread and to avoid potentially getting dangerously sick.

We’re wishing Hostin and Navarro speedy recoveries.
