Skeem Saam cast and crew members have been asked to self-quarantine after one crew member had direct contact with a person who tested positive for Covid-19.
In a statement released by production company Peu Communication Solutions, all filming has ceased until further notice.
“It is with dismay that we confirm that a colleague has come into direct contact with a relative that has tested positive for Covid-19. Therefore, for the safety and health of everyone, we have taken the decision to pause shooting until further notice. The crew member and everyone that they have been directly in contact with have all been tested and are awaiting results.”
“The cast and crew have been asked to urgently self-quarantine while the necessary health procedures and testing are being arranged in accordance with government legislation. Whilst our doors stay closed, our studio and offices will be disinfected and sanitised.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought feelings of doubt and fear to our doorsteps but we can still fight it”. – the statement said
