"American Idol" has shut down production over coronavirus concerns.
The ABC singing competition is enacting additional precautions across its production during the ongoing health crisis, suspending any new filming and enabling remote work for the rest of its employees. Staffers are also ensuring contestants get home to their families during the health crisis.
Episodes will continue to air as scheduled until the live shows, which are set to begin in April.
A source said Katy Perry “seems more cautious since she is pregnant” during the rapid spread of COVID-19, as she and fiancé Orlando Bloom prepare to welcome their first child together this summer.
