'Riverdale' production shut down after crew member tests positive for COVID-19

The decision was made "out of an abundance of caution."

That's a wrap on "Riverdale" -- at least for the time being.

WBTV also confirmed that the crew member affected is "currently receiving medical evaluation."

"Riverdale" stars KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart. It was in the middle of shooting its fourth season when everything was shut down. There was no mention of when production for the teen series is expected to start up again.

This is just the latest of shows that have begun taking precautions in the wake of the growing COVID-19 outbreak.

CBS' "Survivor" halted production on filming its 41st season and shows like "Live with Kelly and Ryan" and "The View" have started filming without their typical live audiences.
