AEW Takes Extra Safety Precautions, Gives COVID-19 Tests To All Involved With LIVE AEW Dynamite In Jacksonville

Some special precautions are being taken to ensure safety from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) at the returning LIVE episode of AEW Dynamite this evening at Daily’s Place Amphitheater in Jacksonville, Florida.

The IATSE 115 posted on Facebook today noting that they have reopened with AEW Dynamite at Daily’s Place Amphitheater.

This group (whose initials stand for International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees) is the local union that represents the technicians who specialize in providing crews to set up lighting, sound, video, etc. for events.

Featured below is a recap of what IATSE 115 posted on their official Facebook page on Wednesday:

“We reopened with AEW-All Elite Wrestling SAFELY at Daily’s Place Amphitheatre today. A COVID-19 Rapid Test was given to every stagehand, road crew, venue staff and talent before entering the venue. Portable wash stations, hand sanitizer stations, mandatory masks covering, social distancing (especially at breaks) at all times. We didn’t ask to be the first but we are and we are working to keep it SAFE! #iatse115 #unionstrong #returntoworksafely.”

When a user asked what happens if someone tests positive and are asymptomatic – whether they would have to self-quarantine for 21 days, the union responded by saying the following:

“All the IATSE local members tested negative on the Serological test. If a member had tested positive then they would be referred for a Molecular test. Results of this test determines whether you can work.”
