‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Halts Shooting For Two Weeks Due To COVID Cases

Universal

UPDATED: Universal has weighed in with more on the temporary halting of production. See below Trevorrow’s Tweet.

PREVIOUSLY, 11:10 AM: Director Colin Trevorrow has just tweeted that Jurassic World: Dominion will halt production for two weeks after some positive COVID-19 tests turned up. Even though they’re negative now, the pic halted. They’ve got time. The film was just moved from June 11, 2021 to June 10, 2022.

Per a Universal spokesman: “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.”
