"Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen" is set to return with new episodes on Bravo Monday despite the host being tested positive for the new coronavirus just last week, Deadline reports.

The talk show was planned to return on March 22 but the plan was nixed after Cohen said he was tested positive for COVID-19. The network told Deadline that he's feeling better and will be quarantined during the shot of the new episodes, which will be filmed from his New York City apartment. Celebrity guests will appear on "Watch What Happens Live!" via video chat "with special games, at-home show-and-tells and surprises," Deadline writes, which adds the show's staff and production team will work from their homes as well.

On the episode airing Monday night, "The Real Housewives" stars Nene Leaks and Lisa Rinna will make a virtual appearance. Actor Jerry O'Connell will also be on the show. Tomorrow night, "Vander Pump Rules" stars Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor will stop by. Musician John Mayer will appear on "WWHL" on Wednesday and "Real Housewives" stars Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer and Melissa and Joe Gorga will be on the Thursday night episode.

In addition to hosting his talk show from his home, Cohen will also broadcast his SiriusXM program "Andy Cohen Live" from his apartment, which airs Mondays and Wednesday at 10 a.m. EST, Deadline notes.

On Monday morning, Cohen took to Twitter to say he's "back and healthy!" while announcing that "WWHL" will be on tonight.

On March 20, Cohen, 51, took to Instagram to alert fans he has COVID-19. Posting a selfie, he captioned the pic:

After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus. As much as I felt like I could push through whatever I was feeling to do #WWHL from home, we're putting a pin in that for now so I can focus on getting better. I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves.
