WWE has confirmed that in its first known case someone in the company has contracted the coronavirus, but the promotion will continue wrestling with scheduled events.

ProWrestlingSheet was the first to break the news that an on-camera talent had contracted COVID-19 during the past few weeks. The person attended a dinner with hospital workers and got a positive test soon after that.

WWE shortly after the news broke released this statement:

"We believe this matter is low risk to WWE talent and staff, as the individual and a roommate became symptomatic in the days following exposure to two people working in acute health care on the evening of March 26, after WWE’s TV production on a closed set was already complete."

"The employee had no contact with anyone from WWE since being exposed to those two individuals, is doing well, and made a complete recovery."

So while so much of the sports world has come to a halt amid the coronavirus pandemic, WWE has continued to put out content. 2 weeks ago they put on WrestleMania 36 albeit it was slightly different that their traditional even as it was featured over two nights and the matches were recorded earlier in the week.
