WWE/COVID 19: WWE locations being investigated as potential COVID-19 hotspots in Orange County

Posted on 10/21/120 by Colin Vassallo

ABC affiliate WFTV9 is reporting that the Orange County
Strike Team is looking into bars and businesses where COVID-
19 might be spreading and three of those buildings are WWE

Full Sail University which is no longer used by WWE for
now along with the WWE Performance Center, and The Amway
Center are on the list along with the Jesus School, the
Amazon distribution center, Plaza on University Apartments,
two Crunch Fitness locations, and Starbound Performers.
Several bars are also on the list being investigated.

Reacting to the news, WWE issued a statement to WFTV9 saying
that the company is not open to the public and is 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%, the statement
read. Additionally, extensive contact tracing takes place
and impacted individuals are placed in 14-day quarantine and
then only cleared after they test negative.

WWE has suffered two known coronavirus outbreaks since the
pandemic started, the latest one in September.
