According to White House officials, Harris did not have any interaction with either Sunny or Ana before the show.

Fellow hosts Sara Haines and Joy said the production crew took immediate action by cleaning and disinfecting the table.

However, following the announcement, the show producers decided that Harris would be interviewed remotely "just to be safe."
