With today's TV taping canceled, WWE is testing everyone for COVID-19 today.  They are rotating everyone.  We are told that this was a legitimate COVID-19 test via the nose.  Mojo Rawley tweeted out his test:

Yesterday's taping at the PC covered yesterday's Raw, this Friday's Smackdown and this weekend's edition of Main Event.  There were invited fans at the taping yesterday, which has to be worst timing ever.

If/when they resume tapings, WWE would tape next week's episodes of Raw, Smackdown, Main Event and two weeks of 205 Live.  The hope is to resume tomorrow but that would be pending an all clear from today's COVID-19 testing.  Since all signs are this is the first time the majority of those being tested have actually taken a COVID-19 test, there's no telling what the results will be.

For those asking what talent tested positive, will not be reporting their identity unless they are or WWE choose to identify the talent publicly.  It's a health issue and their privacy should be respected.
