As per Deadline, producers from ITV America's ITV Entertainment will be working out of production pods.

According to Digital Spy, CBS have said that everyone involved will be put into quarantine before getting to work on the show.

'[They] will be within quarantined 'bubbles' where they will undergo isolation before production begins...'

Testing

It's believed they'll also be tested for coronavirus before and during the show.

CBS said, 'They will also all be regularly tested throughout the season, as well as screened daily for symptoms.'

'Crew and staff will be required to wear PPE and work in pods to enhance social distancing.'
