The doctors got sick before everyone else.
Chicago One has managed to turn its hit Chicago Fire series into a media franchise by adding related series about doctors and the police to the firefighter series. And it was Chicago Meds who were the first to resume production after the quarantine. But the medical theme did not help. In the week since filming resumed on Sept.22, two employees have tested positive for coronavirus on set.
If in the first case only an employee who passed a positive test was sent to quarantine, then in the second the production of the series was stopped for two weeks. According to the Deadline portal, this is due to the fact that the sick employee, in his role on the set, was in contact with a large number of people.
Stopping filming of the series will not affect filming of related projects in any way. “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D” will begin filming on October 6. And, if there are no new positive tests, this will not affect the premiere date. All three series are due to release their new seasons to viewers on November 11 this year.
