‘Chicago Meds’ Pauses Production Due To Positive COVID-19 Tests
‘Chicago Meds’ have taken a break and gone into 2 weeks of suspension. The halt comes after a positive COVID-19 test. The show was regularly taking COVID-19 tests to ensure the safety of their crew and abide by the pandemic protocols. The person who tested positive was a production team member from Zone A Department.
The person with positive test result was sent home immediately. The immediate contact tracing took place to see how many people had been in close the proximity of the said person. As the person in question was in contact with most of the crew and cast members, the production had to stop immediately.
Wolf Entertainment and Universal TV notified the cast and crew of ‘Chicago Meds’ and paused the shoot for next 14 days. Another show, ABC’s ‘For Life’, also had to stop its production after receiving a positive COVID-19 test result.
This was not the first positive test result received at the sets of ‘Chicago Meds’. Another person had tested COVID-19 positive on September 24. ‘Chicago Meds’ was the first Chicago One drama to start filming. It restarted its production from September 22. However, it is to confirm that the halt in production will not alter the delivery date of the show.
