The production of Riverdale has been suspended after a team member came into contact with someone who was recently tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

TV spokesperson, the team member is currently receiving a medical evaluation. The spokesperson also mentioned that people in charge are trying to identify and contact all the people who may have come into direct contact with the team member.
