According to a report from PWInsider, WWE brought in a number of talents and has all of them sequestered in a hotel. WWE will tape all of their material in waves in order to follow CDC standards with the current environment and health concerns. PWInsider also notes that tapings may go all the way through to the Money in the Bank PPV.

Reportedly, the company will continue to change the ropes, turnbuckles, canvas, and aprons in between all matches in order to keep a sanitized environment and make sure talents are healthy. All who attended tapings, talent and staff, must be cleared by medical personnel before they are allowed to enter the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. In addition, they will need to wear face masks whenever they're not on camera and practice social distancing as much as possible with exceptions including when talent is performing or putting together a match.

Baltimore, Maryland's Royal Farms Arena announced on Thursday, April 9th, 2020, that WWE Money in the Bank was officially canceled and would not be taking place at that venue. Learn more about that at this link.
