A positive COVID-19 diagnosis on the set of The Flash TV series has caused a halt in production.

According to a report from Deadline, an unnamed member of the crew has tested positive for the coronavirus, but is currently asymptomatic. Contact tracing is being conducted to determine if the series will be able to resume production without the crewmember and any contacts that may need to quarantine.

The case was caught due to the extensive testing that is being conducted on all Warner Bros. TV productions.

The Flash is not the only series that has had to halt production since series were allowed to return to work. Other series have included Why Women Kill (CBS All Access), Bosch (Amaz0n), Young Sheldon (CBS), All American (The CW), and several others.

All of the CWVerse series are expected to return in Jan. 2021.
