Netflix original series Bridgerton's production was put on ice following positive Covid test results amongst the crew.

The hit drama had to shutter the sets temporarily on Thursday, as per a report by Deadline, after a crew member contracted COVID-19.

The filming resumed on Friday but was suspended indefinitely on Saturday after another person tested positive. It remains unknown whether the second diagnosis was of a crew or cast member.

It was further revealed that Netflix has stringent testing protocols in place.

This comes after the United Kingdom recently reported its highest number of COVID cases on July 16, in over six months, according to Reuters
