'Grey's Anatomy' Shuts Down Production Amid Coronavirus Concerns

Grey’s Anatomy has suspended production for at least two weeks.

The hit ABC series has shut down filming due to the coronavirus outbreak, Deadline reports.

The news comes as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has also called for a limit on public gatherings to 50 people or less.

The cast and crew just wrapped production on Episode 21 of the show’s 25-episode 16th season.

Executive producer/showrunner Krista Vernoff and executive producers Debbie Allen and James D. Parriott wrote the following to the cast and crew:

“To Our Incredible Cast and Crew:

Out of an abundance of caution, production is postponed on Grey’s Anatomy effective immediately. We are going home now for at least two weeks and waiting to see how the coronavirus situation evolves.

This decision was made to ensure the health and safety of the whole cast and crew and the safety of our loved ones outside of work, and it was made in accordance with Mayor Garcetti’s suggestion that we not gather in groups of more than 50.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay hydrated, stay home as much as possible, and wash your hands frequently. Please take care of yourselves and each other. As updates come in, we will keep you informed.

Thank you for all that you do!”
