WWE venues in Florida being investigated

WFTV ABC 9 TV in Orlando is reporting the Orange County Department of Health is asking the Strike Team to look into a list of 17 businesses where COVID-19 might be spreading.

Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino said people in their late teens and early 20s are gathering to cheer on college teams or their favorite NFL team, and the virus is spreading.

According to the report, the list of 17 businesses for WWE are Full Sail University, the Capitol Wrestling Center, and the Amway Arena.

WWE issued the following statement to WFTV in response:

“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.”
