Fans of the reality TV show The Masked Singer are breathing a sigh of relief tonight, after authorities gave the show the all clear to resume production in a Melbourne studio.
Yesterday Network 10 announced the suspension of the show, after several crew members tested positive for Covid-19.
“We’re stoked to be back in production,” says Network TEN’s Mark Swinerton. “It’s been a tough and very uncertain 24 hours.”
The good news for the show came after a studio inspection today by the Federal Government.
“The costume masks being worn by the performers were not covid-safe,” says a Department of Health Official.
“But as long as all performers also wear an approved surgical face mask, we’re happy for the show to resume production.
DBT understands the show’s host and judges will now also be wearing protective face masks.
Producers say the studio will undergo a deep clean tomorrow.
More to come.
