As we’ve covered on the site, WWE is currently under investigation for three of its locations being considered COVID-19 hotspots in Florida.
The company has now issued the following statement via Heel By Nature, who were first to report the news. The statement reads as follows:
“WWE is not open to the public, but rather operating on a closed set with only essential personnel in attendance. As part of on-going weekly testing protocols, Aventus Labs have administered more than 10,000 PCR tests to WWE performers, employees, production staff and crew resulting in only 1.5 percent positive cases as compared to the current national average of more than 5%. Additionally, extensive contact tracing takes place and impacted individuals are placed in 14-day quarantine and then only cleared after they test negative.”
WWE is reportedly under investigation for three different locations which are considered to be hotspots for COVID-19 in Florida.
The three locations are the Amway Center (the ThunderDome), the Performance Center, and Full Sail where NXT was being taped for a while.
As reported by Heel By Nature via WFTV, the Orange County Department of Public Health is investigating several businesses and locations, and WWE is among them.
