The WWE announced today that it’s stopped filming at its Orlando training and production facilities after a performer tested positive for coronavirus. 

The WWE says the performer was at the facility as recently as Tuesday June 9. 

In a statement released today, Associate Medical Director Dr. Jeffrey Dugas says since then no other people on site have shown symptoms of the virus.

Dugas said all talent, production crews and staff will be tested for COVID-19 out of an abundance of caution and to protect their health and safety.

The company plans on resuming their normal television production schedule pending test results. 

Gov. Ron DeSantis deemed the WWE an essential business-which allowed it to continue holding matches and filming throughout the pandemic.
