On Friday (January 8), The View co-host shared that both of her husband’s parents passed away during the holidays.
Sunny told viewers that even after rigorous contact tracing she still doesn’t know how they contracted the virus. “They were both physicians and they were both very careful,” she said. “They didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving with us because we all decided it wasn’t safe.”
She went on to thank the healthcare workers who took care of her in-laws and her fellow co-hosts for their support, as well as remind viewers to take the pandemic seriously. “We want everyone to know that you may think you’re healthy and you won’t be impacted,” she said, “But you may be an asymptomatic carrier. You could put someone you love at risk.”
