• WWE announcer Renee Young reveals she tested positive for COVID-19
  • A WWE correspondent says she is dealing with COVID-19 for the second time
  • WWE continues to be more cautious to prevent further spread of the coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to plague the world and part of that are some personalities in the wrestling industry. WWE announcer Renee Young confirmed that she tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday not long after her show got canceled.

Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 may have infected people who they are around most of the time. In the case of Young, that person is her husband Jon Moxley. Though he has not confirmed having the coronavirus, the 34-year-old took necessary precautions and begged off from AEW's 'Dynamite' episode fearing that his exposure could further spread the virus, TMZ Sports reported.

"Mox did the right thing and warned us," AEW top brass Tony Khan said. "Doc asked him to stay home and get tested to protect us here at our test site."

In the WWE, correspondent Kayla Braxton confirmed that she has tested positive for the coronavirus for the second time in just a few months. He dealt with the virus in March and felt she was good to go when she got better. She thought wrong.

”I had it back in early March and then thought I was invincible after I recovered. Not true. Don't be dumb like me,” she said.

COVID-19 testing for all WWE talent is still ongoing for all their talent, production crew and employees. Some staff members have already tested positive for the coronavirus, including in-ring talent. According to ProWrestlingSheet, at least three people have already tested positive for the strain.

Despite the rising number of positive COVID-19 cases, the WWE is still not classifying it as an outbreak. This is because the cases were not part of a large group that got afflicted with the strain. Looking ahead, the WWE has no choice but to employ stricter measures to prevent the virus from further spreading. The outfit plans to resume TV production this week.

This development comes not long after the spike in cases over in Florida. There were an additional 3,286 cases reported last Tuesday and 5,508 on Wednesday. These numbers were the highest recorded so far in the region. With more COVID-19 testing and businesses reopening, the numbers are expected to go further up.
