In a statement first released to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet and WWE Backstage, WWE has confirmed that an on-screen talent that is not a member of their roster has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease that has locked down the world in the last month. They contracted the virus after going out to dinner with friends who work in the health care industry. The full statement is replicated below:

A WWE employee has tested positive for COVID-19. We believe this matter is low risk to WWE talent and staff, as the individual and a roommate became symptomatic in the days following exposure to two people working in acute health care on the evening of March 26, after WWE’s TV production on a closed set was already complete. The employee had no contact with anyone from WWE since being exposed to those two individuals, is doing well, and made a complete recovery.

WWE also confirmed that the unnamed talent and their significant other went into quarantine immediately following the diagnosis and stayed there for a week. They were not present for any WWE tapings since testing positive and are cleared of the virus for the time being. There is no word on the identity of the unidentified talent at this time, nor if they are going to be in attendance at future WWE closed set broadcasts.
