Bachelor Nation isn’t taking any chances amid coronavirus fears.
Audience members attending the live taping of “The Bachelor” finale, with part one airing Monday and the “After the Final Rose” special Tuesday, had to confirm they hadn’t recently traveled to countries most hard-hit by the virus or been near anyone exhibiting symptoms, a Warner Bros. spokesperson told Page Six on Tuesday.
“These new and temporary precautionary measures have been put in place out of an abundance of caution and out of concern for the health and safety of our guests and staff,” the spokesperson said.
Guests were also asked to verify if they or those in their immediate household have “exhibited any of the COVID-19 symptoms,” and have “been in close contact [within 6 feet] with someone exhibiting any of the COVID-19 symptoms,” according to a form obtained by TMZ.
Peter Weber‘s “Bachelor” journey will conclude Tuesday, with finalist Hannah Ann Sluss remaining. Fellow contestant Madison Prewett is also expected to return after breaking up with the show’s star during Monday’s installment.
“The Bachelor” joins a list of TV shows taking precautionary measures in response to the outbreak, with “Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune” reportedly taping shows without a studio audience present.
