WFTV has learned that the Orange County Department of Health is investigating 17 businesses that are potential places where COVID-19 is spreading. Three of the potential COVID-19 hot spots are WWE-related as Full Sail, the WWE Performance Center, and the Amway Center are under investigation.Most of the other locations are bars and restaurants.
“WWE is not open to the public, but rather operating on a closed set with only essential personnel in attendance,” WWE said in a statement to WFTV. “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.”
Additionally, Gilt is also being investigated, which is a regular venue for Major League Wrestling television tapings, including the One-Shot relaunch.
