Another day, another film/television show gets put on hold and this time it’s Jurassic World: Dominion.

Director Colin Trevorrow announced on Twitter that there were positive coronavirus tests and that production would be paused for two weeks, “Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols, we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.”

This news comes just a day after Universal pushed back the release date of the film from Summer 2021 to June 10, 2022.

Jurassic World: Dominion, the sixth entry in the 27-year-old series, had just begun production in the U.K. when the pandemic started spreading across Europe in March. After being shut down for a month, the film was one of the first to resume filming.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are reprising their roles and the rest of the cast includes Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and BD Wong.
