Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that a WWE on-screen talent in the company, who is not a member of the roster, tested positive for COVID-19.
The person was reported to have went out to dinner with friends who work in the healthcare industry following the completion of WWE’s last batch of tapings (which included WrestleMania 36).
WWE confirmed this in a statement released to Pro Wrestling Sheet which says:
“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.”
