I told you…. it was TOO SOON to resume production. And this proves my point! Test all you want, but that is NOT going to stop the virus from spreading: what WILL stop it is quarantine, wearing masks whenever outside of your home, and adhering to CDC guidelines.

Why am I not surprised. I was hoping that production could hold out until Christmas before an outbreak occurred on set.

Way too soon and the productions *Y&R, B&B are haunting-looking including Nikki’s wig. It’s like the twilight zone. There are riches of reruns, classics to run with current at-home intros by the stars. Keep doing that, and stop terrorizing viewers (you can’t even hear the actors) and putting actors lives at risk.

Relax people. They do NOT let ANYONE into the areas if they test positive. You get treated BEFORE being allowed entry and must be negative. It’s fine. Let’s move forward.
