NEW YORK – Joan Rivers’ family says the comedian has been moved from intensive care into a private room, where she is “being kept comfortable.”

No further details were released Wednesday on Rivers’ condition. On Tuesday, the family confirmed she was on life support at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan after going into cardiac arrest last Thursday.

In this latest statement, her daughter, Melissa Rivers, thanked the public for its continued support.

“My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable,” Melissa Rivers said.

The 81-year-old comic and red-carpet commentator has maintained a busy career as host of Fashion Police on the E! network and, with her daughter, a co-star of the WEtv reality show, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?
