WWE Issues Statement On Fans Not Wearing Masks

WWE Issues Statement On Fans Not Wearing Masks
As noted, some real fans were in attendance at Monday's WWE television tapings and, according to some reports, fans were told that they could not wear masks in the audience or they would have to leave.


WWE stated that face masks were not required because the fans underwent medical screenings and were kept apart from talent and the production crew. The statement did not indicate that masks were banned. The company noted that attendance was below 20% capacity and social distancing guidelines were adhered to with at least six feet between parties.

Talent, employees and production crew are being tested for COVID-19 today at the WWE Performance Center. WWE Associate Medical Director Dr. Jeffrey Dugas stated that once the test results come back, WWE will continue to proceed with their normal television production schedule. WWE is currently scheduled to tape next week's RAW and SmackDown, as well as two weeks of NXT, on Wednesday after today's tapings were cancelled.

Below is the full statement from WWE:
"Fans have not been in attendance at WWE events since March 13. Yesterday, a select number of friends and family were permitted to attend WWE's TV production. These individuals were required to participate in medical screenings prior to entering the closed set at our training facility, and were kept apart from in-ring performers and production personnel. Attendance was below 20% capacity and social distancing guidelines were adhered to with at least six feet between parties, thus face masks were not required."
