It was just yesterday, we learnt about Jurassic World: Dominion has been delayed for release. Now, another piece of news is coming in and we hope, the film doesn’t suffer much due to it.
Yes, it’s a bit unfortunate for both fans and the makers as some of the crew members have been tested positive for COVID- 19. But not to worry, as all the tests are being declared negative, just after a while. Seems confusing? Let us help you.
As per the spokesperson of Universal Pictures, some of the test results of Jurassic World: Dominion members came positive on Tuesday evening. But thankfully, all test results were declared as negative on the next morning. Well, that’s a huge sigh of relief, but for safety, the makers have decided to halt the shoot for two weeks.
Director of Jurassic World: Dominion, Colin Trevorrow informed about the same on Twitter. He wrote, “Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols, we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.”

Even the spokesperson said, “The safety and well-being of our entire cast and crew is paramount. Those who initially tested positive are currently self-isolating, as are those who they have come into contact with.”
Now, that’s truly a sensible move by the makers!
