WWE has paused taping after a developmental talent tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), WWE’s associate medical director, Dr. Jeffrey Dugas, said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.
“A developmental talent, who was last onsite at WWE’s training facility on Tuesday, June 9, has tested positive for COVID-19. Since that time, no other individuals that attended the facility have reported symptoms,” Dugas said.
“However, out of an abundance of caution and to ensure the health and safety of the company’s performers and staff, all talent, production crew and employees on site at the training and production facilities will be tested for COVID-19 immediately,” the statement added.
Dugas said that after they receive the test results, “WWE plans to proceed with its normal television production schedule.”
Until now, WWE had only been conducting temperature checks with talent and employees before entering the Performance Center for television and pay-per-view tapings, according to CBS Sports.
