Report: WWE Doesn't Think People Will Have To Wear Face Masks At TV Tapings Despite Orange County, Florida Executive Order

Research has shown face masks reduce the spread of COVID-19...

Over the past 24 hours, Kayla Braxton, Renee Young and Adam Peace have all revealed they tested positive for COVID-19. This comes after reports noted multiple people in WWE tested positive for coronavirus this week. 

WWE reportedly plans to film double episodes of Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown on June 26 and June 27 despite the positive tests, and whether or not NXT Superstars in the crowd wear face masks remains to be seen.

Mayor of Orange County, Florida Jerry Demings issued an executive order last week which stated: "Every person working, living, visiting, or doing business in Orange County is required to wear a Face Covering consistent with the current CDC guideline while in any public place." 

Dave Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Observer Radio WWE doesn't believe the executive order applies to them, however, as the Performance Center is privately owned.

Meltzer said: "WWE did tell me… the rule of everyone when they leave their house unless they're exercising has to wear a mask, they believe, as of yesterday, the belief was that this does not apply to them because they are in a private facility."

Research has shown that face masks reduce the spread of COVID-19.
