A member of the crew working on FOX’s neXT has tested positive for COVID-19. The news comes shortly after the show finished filming in Chicago, Illinois.
“We have been notified by the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) that a crew member on neXt, which concluded production in Chicago last week, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is receiving treatment,” Disney Television Studios, FOX’s parent company, stated.
“We are working closely with the CDPH to identify and contact all individuals who came in direct contact with the crew member, and are taking precautions to protect all who work on our productions,” Disney Television Studios continued.
As of now, there have been no other confirmed cases affiliated with the show. Also, FOX has released the name of the crew member diagnosed. NeXT is set to premiere on FOX later this spring.
