A Crew Member Of Days Of Our Lives Tested Positive For The COVID-19 Virus

“Days Of Our Lives” Shooting Postponed For 2 Weeks After A Crew Member Tests Positive For The Deadly Virus: NBC’s showΒ Days Of Our Lives production has been postponed for two weeks. A member of the team tested positive for the deadlyΒ COVID-19 virus. Thus, all the crew and staff members received an email from Corday Productions regarding the shut down of set. The filming will continue from October 26, 2020.

However, the postponement won’t affect the show dates, and it will run as smoothly as it was before. The crew member who contracted the COVID-19 virus is in isolation. Also, preliminary contract tracing has been done. People who were close to the infected person are placed in quarantine for 14 days.Β 

Some further precautionary measures are also taken. The DOOL production facilities at the Burbank Studios saw deep cleaning and sanitisation of every object.

Other Shows Like “For Life” & “Chicago Med” Were Also Affected Because Of The Pandemic

Days Of Our Lives shooting was also held in mid-march in the wake of ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, the team had completed enough episodes to last until early October. It’s shooting started on September 1 again.Β 

Many other big production series were also affected because of the current crisis. Other shows which shut down for two weeks after positive COVID-19 tests include ABC/Sony TVΒ For LifeΒ and NBC/Uni TV’sΒ Chicago Med.

Corday Productions create days Of Our Lives. Sony Pictures Association is its associative head. The lead writer is Ron Carlivati, and the executive producer is Ken Corday.Β
