A strike team in Florida will be investigating 17 businesses that are suspected of being COVID-19 hot spots.
The WWE venues Full Sail Arena, the WWE Performance Center and the Amway Arena are all the focus of the probe along with many bars, restaurants and fitness centers.
The WWE issued the following statement in response to the news: “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.”
In Florida at the present time one in 28 people have contracted the virus. The states has had 16,105 deaths and 760,389 cases in total with the numbers continuing to rise.
