According to Variety, “Riverdale” put a pause on production after a member of production — no news yet if it is cast or crew — reportedly came in contact with someone diagnosed with coronavirus. The suspension comes at a time that the series is filming its fourth season and hysteria has shut down various other events. Recently it was announced by Deadline that The Kids’ Choice Awards have been postponed.

“The Kids’ Choice Awards scheduled for March 22, 2020, in Los Angeles is being postponed in consideration of the safety and well-being of every person involved with the show, which is our top priority. We will have further information about a new date in the future,” the statement published by Deadline read. Earlier this week it was announced that the NBA suspended its current season.
