The WWE has issued the following statement, announcing that an unnamed employee who has recently been at the WWE Performance Center has tested positive for COVID-19:
Statement from WWE's Associate Medical Director, Jeffrey Dugas:
“A developmental talent, who was last on site 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. 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. Following the test results, WWE plans to proceed with its normal television production schedule.”
