NJPW has announced that the company will resume touring on May 22 after several of their talent tested positive for COVID-19.
On May 22, NJPW will be at the Nagoya Congress Center Event Hall and on May 24, 25 and 26 they will return to Korakuen Hall.
NJPW also stated that talent would be permitted to return to the ring only after rigorous testing and close consultation with medical officials.
“Infected wrestlers have all continued to display minor or no symptoms and have isolated and received appropriate medical treatment. Additionally, wrestlers who had contact with the infected, or had any reason to be concerned, have also independently isolated and taken relevant measures. Wrestlers who have completed their isolation period are being allowed to resume training,” said NJPW in a statement.
NJPW maintains that the promotion follows strict screening policies which include attendees at events having their temperatures screened on entry to venues, masks are required during training and backstage, and packaged food is provided in order to limit unnecessary movement outside.
