After an indie wrestling show in North Queensland, Australia, three fans have tested positive for COVID-19 following a Pro Wrestling Power event.
The local news said there is a workplace connection and an investigation is underway for those infected. Everyone who attended the show will be contacted to be tested. If everyone remains in good health, no further action will be taken. The risk rate still remains low for the area.
Health officials are working hard to determine a source of the infection.
An official statement was released by the venue.
“PCYC Queensland was today informed that a person who attended an-externally run wrestling event held at PCYC Edmonton on March 14th. This has been confirmed as contracting COVID-19.
