The Flash, Supergirl, & More Shut Down Production

In order to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect their employees, Warner Bros TV Group has suspended production on several series, including The Flash, Batwoman, and Supergirl. Supergirl was scheduled to wrap next week, with Batwoman and The Flash originally scheduled to end production early next month. Legends of Tomorrow already wrapped a few weeks ago. In addition, Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has stopped work by its first unit as the director awaits results of a coronavirus test. WBTVG released the following statement,
With the rapidly changing events related to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, Warner Bros. Television Group is halting production on some of our 70+ series and pilots currently filming or about to begin.  There have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on any of our productions, but the health and safety of our employees, casts and crews remains our top priority. During this time, we will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control as well as local officials and public health professionals in each city where our productions are based.
UPDATE: I'm seeing reports Supernatural has also shut down.
