South African telenovela, The River, which resumed shooting last month, has once again halted shooting after one of the production team members tested positive for Covid-19.

All the cast and crew have been asked to self-isolate while the necessary health protocols are being implemented. They said all the necessary lockdown health guidelines were implemented on set.

The cast and crew that came into contact with the member were asked to go into self-isolation and will soon avail themselves to health authorities for testing, in line with government directives.

Now more than ever, the team said it needs to show compassion to their fellow brothers and sisters. They  wished the affected member of the production team a speedy recovery.

The show’s producers revealed that The River has closed its doors for the set to be decontaminated. They also urged members of the public to afford the cast and crew space to deal with the situation.
