'Chicago Med' Production Halted Over Positive COVID-19 Test

Chicago Med, that started filming Season 6 to September 22, is carrying a two-week hiatus following a team member tested positive for COVID-19, TV Guide has verified.

Deadline reports that the production was stopped on Tuesday when a member of the production team took a regular - rapid test - part of the safety protocol of the show, and tested positive. The show will be shutdown for the next two weeks out of an abundance of caution. NBC has had to shuffle its fall schedule, with reality shows like American Ninja Warrior and a Weakest Link reboot hosted by Jane Lynch picking up the slack while scripted shows like Law & Order: SVU and The Blacklist get pushed back several months.

"Chicago Med" has turn into the most recent collection to be compelled to droop manufacturing because of a constructive COVID-19 check. The positive test also triggered guidelines set by the sate/county and outlined in the NBCU Production Playbook, including immediate contact tracing. The person who tested positive was in a role which meant they were in close proximity to other cast and crew members, hence the decision to suspend production.

Cast and crew were informed as a result that production will be halted for 14 days.

A stop-and-go in filming is considered highly possible and all precautions are being followed as studios try to shoot new content during the Covid pandemic. The rest also will not stop the creation programs such as Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D., that are the result of pick up filming October 6. NBC now has it slated to premiere November 11 along with Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.
