In an interview with Variety, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon discussed the precautions that the company are taking by continuing to hold closed-set shows amid the Coronavirus outbreak.
“At a typical event, talent are milling about, they’re at catering or wherever when they’re not actually in part of the show, that’s not allowed now, there’s extensive testing and screening when you first come in the facility, regardless of whether you are a talent, a crew member, or anyone else. Working with our doctors, you have your temperature taken and if you have a temperature over 100.4 degrees, then you are automatically asked to leave. We’re taking every precaution we can, it’s also why you don’t see talent or anyone else in the audience, we really are adhering to all the guidelines that we can to maintain the health and safety of our crew and our performers.”
