It's been 18 years since 'The Rosie O'Donnell Show' went off the air, but on Sunday it's coming back for one night. The host announced to PEOPLE Magazine on Wednesday that the show will be broadcast live on Broadway.com and will raise more for the casts, crews, and other workers who have been financially impacted by the closure of Broadway amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Everybody who knows me knows that Broadway has been one of the brightest lights in my life since the time I was a little girl," O'Donnell told the outlet. "It has also been the lifeblood of New York City for generation after generation. After all Broadway has given to the world, now — in this time of tremendous need — it’s our turn to give something back. There is no better way to support this community than via The Actors Fund. And, with a line-up like this, I dare you not to tune in.”

"This is the ultimate win-win proposition; The Actors Fund needs our support, and we’re all desperate for some fabulous entertainment we can enjoy from the safety of our own homes," Actor and producer Bergen said. "I’m so grateful to Rosie, and to this truly jaw-dropping array of talent that have agreed to participate.”

While enjoying the fundraiser, it's important to remember the ways in which we can all help fallen the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.

In addition to avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people and social distancing, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
