Production had been halted because a crew member had been exposed to someone with a positive testing of COVID-19.
So every single cast and crew member had to be testing and production was frozen while this went down.
Endermol Shine Australia, Big Brother’s production company, released the news on TV Tonight.
“The test result for our Big Brother crew member believed to be exposed to COVID-19 has come back negative. We will resume filming Big Brother tomorrow and will continue to work within all Federal and State guidelines.”
Which is great news!
This comeback season of Big Brother has been highly anticipated.
After being totally isolated, the cast had no idea about the global pandemic taking place until early last week!

To be honest, maybe they should just stay inside that house until this whole thing blows over.
The Big Brother house is the height of self-isolation.
