Talent and staff on the All Elite Wrestling roster will be undergoing or have undergone COVID-19 rapid tests prior to tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TNT at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida.
In a post on their official Facebook page, the IATSE, who are a labor union that represent technicians, artisans and craftpersons in the entertainment industry, including live theatre, motion picture and television production and trade shows explained the safety measures taken to re-open Daily’s Place stating, “We opened with AEW-All Elite Wrestling SAFELY at Daily’s Place Amphitheatre today. A COVID-19 Rapid Test was given to every stagehand, road crew, venue staff and talent before entering the venue. Portable wash stations, hand sanitizer stations, mandatory masks covering, social distancing (especially at breaks) at all time. We didn’t ask to be the first, but we are and we are working to keep it SAFE!”
For those wondering, the AEW events will continue to be held without any live audience in attendance.
