As the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak continues to spread around the world, businesses and companies of all kinds are taking precautions to avoid the infection, including TV shows and movies that are in filming.

Apple TV+ series "The Morning Show" is one show that will be shutting down production temporarily in an effort to prevent cast members and crew from catching the coronavirus, reports Deadline.

The decision was made by "The Morning Show" studio Media Res in conjunction with Apple, and is described as a precaution that has not been prompted by any possible exposure.

"In concert with our dedicated partners at Apple, we have concluded it would be prudent to take a two-week hiatus to assess the situation and ensure the safety of the incredible people who make this show," said Michael Ellenberg, Founder and CEO of Media Res.

"NeXt," a Fox TV show, and "Riverdale," a CW show, have reported crew members who have come down with coronavirus. Actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson, who are in Australia, said yesterday that they have the coronavirus.

"The Morning Show" is in the middle of filming its second season with Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carrell.

So overblown! Geez
The NBA and NHL just suspended their seasons, and MLB has delayed opening day and cancelled spring training. That's not the kind of rash decision you'd make if it were no big deal.

Not sure what the big deal is. Influenza is out there killing people too. Sure, half of the population is vaccinated against the flu, and COVID has a mortality rate 30 times higher. But it's the same.
China shuts down. Italy shuts down.

Especially given the crazy amount of money that these leagues bring in. You can guarantee that they wouldn't indefinitely suspend a season unless they felt like they really had too.

Even with shutting things down, the virus will spread. I don't think experts are expecting that by being proactive and shutting down any unnecessary events that we will stop the spread of the virus. Rather, the goal is to slow down the spread as much as possible, otherwise if it rapidly spreads healthcare systems will not be able to even remotely sustain the demand. Italy is a great example of this.
This is also how I feel exactly. Slow down the number of clusters, don’t overwhelm the health care system, minimize the amount of social contact as best as we can

I simply do not understand when all of these things on "hiatus" think they're coming back. We have colleges near me closing until the end of April - what do they think is going to happen by then? I don't understand. The vaccine is 18 months away. If they are waiting for the virus to go away, are we going to be on shutdown for the next two years? Because it won't be going away magically in a month or two.
