#4. Health Department launches COVID-19 investigation at WWE venues
The Orange County Department of Health has launched an investigation to crack down on the COVID-19 hotspots in the town. The Health Department has asked the Strike Team to investigate several businesses, and the list features three WWE venues.
- Jesus School, Judah Church
- Amazon distribution center, Boggy Creek
- WWE Full Sail
- WWE Performance Center on Forsyth Commerce Road
- WWE Amway Arena
- Plaza on University Apartments
- Crunch Fitness on Colonial Drive
- Crunch Fitness on Hoffner Avenue
- Starbound Performers
WWE released the following statement in response to the investigation:
"WWE is not open to the public, but rather 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%. Additionally, extensive contact tracing takes place, and impacted individuals are placed in 14-day quarantine and then only cleared after they test negative."
The Health Department has also told the Strike Team to focus on bars as they have emerged as the prime hotspots for the spread of COVID-19.
WWE has dealt with its fair share of troubles during the pandemic. The company was hit with an outbreak not too long ago, which altered various previously laid-out plans. More details regarding the investigation should be revealed soon, and we'll keep update about the same.
