Generations: The Legacy has stopped production following another coronavirus scare on the set.

The soapie didn't shut down production when a first crew member was exposed to Covid-19.

Staffers were said to be on edge after a second person was recently exposed to the virus.

A statement has since been released, on behalf of the production, explaining the situation.

It stated that they were informed that an employee who was on set had been exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case on the 18th and has since been sent for testing by their doctor.

Although the staffer's test came back negative, OkMzansi reported that production had since been halted.

Earlier this month, Briefly.co.za reported that Skeem Saam had also been forced to stop production.

This after a crew member came into direct contact with a relative who had tested positive for Covid-19.

The soapie, in a statement posted on its official Twitter account, said they have taken a decision to pause shooting until further notice.

Last week, Rhythm City shut down production after a cast member tested positive for coronavirus.

Rhythm City was the fourth show to halt production due to the coronavirus.

Muvhango has also halted production amid staff members' fears of contracting Covid-19.
