Barbara Walters is recovering from chicken pox, ABC News reports.

Walters first injured herself during Inauguration weekend more than a week ago, falling at the British ambassador’s residence. She was examined by doctors following the incident and was transferred to a New York hospital last week.

“We want to give you an update on Barbara. You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood, Barbara has the chicken pox.” Whoopi Goldberg said on The View today. “She’d never had it as a child. So now she’s been told to rest, she’s not allowed any visitors. and we’re telling you, Barbara, no scratching.”
