Positive COVID Test Won’t Shut Down AEW, Staying In Jacksonville

Today Cody Rhodes took part in a media conference call to promote this Saturday’s AEW Double or Nothing PPV event.

Rhodes discussed AEW’s plans in case a wrestler tests positive for COVID-19. He explains why production would not shut down because of it.

“Cody talked about the COVID-19 testing they have been doing. It’s not done at Daily’s Place or around other wrestlers/staff and even wrestlers/staff are tested in separate places. Notes that production wouldn’t shut down with a positive test.”

Jacksonville local labor union, IATSE 115 (International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees), noted the testing measures in a post on Facebook earlier this month.

A COVID-19 Rapid Test is given to every stagehand, road crew, venue staff, and talent before entering the venue. There are also portable wash stations and hand sanitizer stations placed inside the venue. Finally, mandatory masks covering and social distancing are required at all times unless wrestling or calling the action. AEW is taking every precaution to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Cody goes on to talk about All Elite Wrestling taping in Jacksonville for the foreseeable future.

“Cody says plan right now is for AEW to stay in Jacksonville as moving around opens up more risks. Decision isn’t completely up to him. Safest decision to stay in FL as the pandemic is going.”

Do not be surprised to see AEW stay in Jacksonville all Summer long.
