Universal Pictures has decided to halt the production of "Jurassic World: Dominion" due to COVID-19 related issues. The pause will occur for two weeks.
Earlier, a Universal spokesperson said, "Late last night, we were informed that the Jurassic World: Dominion production experienced a small amount of positive tests for COVID-19. Even though subsequent tests proved negative this morning, due to our rigid protocols and to ensure that the safety and well-being of our entire cast and crew is paramount at all times, those who initially tested positive are currently self-isolating, as are those who they have come into contact with. As a result, filming has been temporarily paused and will resume in accordance with established safety guidelines."
Director Colin Trevorrow also tweeted about the production halt, saying, "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."
"Jurassic World: Dominion" is slated for June 10, 2022 release.
