‘Chicago Fire’ Suspends Production For 2 Weeks After Positive COVID-19 Tests

NBC’s Chicago Fire has paused filming its ninth season for two weeks due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests, I have learned. I hear the Chicago-based firefighter drama shut down production on Sunday, Nov. 8.

Several individuals on the Chicago Fire production team, believed to be in Zone 1, produced positive results when tested as part of the show’s COVID safety protocols.

The positives triggered guidelines set by the sate/county and outlined in the NBCU Production Playbook, including contact tracing.

Since the affected individuals performed duties that required close proximity to other members of the cast and crew, production was paused for 14 days out of an abundance of caution by Wolf Entertainment and Universal TV.
