HBO has shut down production on Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon due to a crew member testing positive for the virus.

Deadline understands that a production member tested positive and in compliance with industry guidelines, will isolate and close contacts are required to quarantine. Production will resume on Wednesday.

House of the Dragon is the latest high-profile production in the UK to have to hit pause due to the pandemic. Deadline revealed that Bridgeton’s second season was shut down for the second time in a week due to a positive case of Covid and Netflix similarly shuttered its feature adaptation of Matilda due to the virus.
