On the heels of a recent release date delay from June 11th, 2021 to June 10, 2022, Jurassic World: Dominion is being forced to temporarily pause production for two weeks following several positive tests on-set as a result of the ongoing global health crisis.
Director Colin Trevorrow took to Twitter to announce the pause in production while also noting that the same people who tested positive have already tested negative but there will be a two-week halt, regardless.
“Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion,” Trevorrow said in a tweet. “All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.”
