NEW YORK (AP) - Barbara Walters says she’s returning to “The View” on Monday.

She’s been sidelined for several weeks. But now she’s “had enough rest and it’s time to come back,” Walters reported by phone during Tuesday’s edition of the ABC talk show.

Walters was hospitalized on Jan. 19 after fainting and cutting her head at a party in Washington. The 83-year-old said she had chickenpox and a fever at the time but didn’t realize it. She suffered a concussion and got six stitches. She was released 10 days later and since then, has been resting in her New York home.

“No more chickenpox,” she told her fellow panelists in the studio during her phone call.
