Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that the NBC soap has been forced to suspend filming again due to a positive COVID-19 test result. According to Deadline, a production team member tested positive and is now in isolation.
Those who had close contact with this person will be in quarantine for 14 days – and the show is shutting down production for two weeks as well.
DOOL’s production facilities will get a thorough disinfecting as part of cautionary deep cleaning measures. It’s good to know Days is following the proper procedures and taking steps to make sure this doesn’t spread.
The cast, crew and other staff members were all sent an informative email from Corday Productions, which offered updates on this temporary break in shooting and why.
Of course, Days fans might be wondering how this will alter what hits the air. Fortunately, it won’t affect what’s on screen at all if DOOL gets back up and running in two weeks like they plan. The show’s set to resume filming on October 26, so there shouldn’t be any issues as long as everyone gets working again by then.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say there are plenty of episodes banked up to cover this unexpected filming gap, so the show will keep airing as usual. DOOL was certainly hoping to avoid shutting down again when they started back on September 1, but sometimes things happen and you just have to handle them accordingly.
The safety of everyone at the studio is the priority, so it’s great that Days of Our Lives is doing what’s necessary and making that the focus. It won’t be long until the cast and crew are back on set to make more Salem magic happen, so we’ll look forward to what else they’re cooking up.
In the meantime, there’ll be major action happening in already filmed episodes. During the week of October 19-23, a blackout will bring darkness in more ways than one! Days of Our Lives spoilers say several Salemites will land in grave danger, so there’ll be tons of drama and total terror in some cases.
