“Several team members of the Lionsgate television series Dear White People for Netflix have tested positive for COVID-19,” a statement from Lionsgate, which produces the series, reads.

It continued, “They are currently in quarantine, and other staff members have been notified. We are following the extensive health and safety protocols we have in place, and the series will not be shooting for the next two weeks while quarantine measures are observed. The health and safety of our Dear White People team is our highest priority.”
