'Bachelor,' 'Ellen' update guest policy; 'Jeopardy' nixes audiences

“The Bachelor,” which airs its finale in front of a studio audience Tuesday, is one of a number of Warner Bros. shows instituting tighter screening procedures for those hoping to attend tapings. 

As concerns about coronavirus continue to affect the entertainment industry, several shows are making changes to their usual protocol regarding studio audiences.

In a statement to USA TODAY, Warner Bros. executive Paul McGuire confirmed that shows that shoot in front of studio audiences will step up screening procedures to limit the spread of the virus.

At tapings for all Warner Bros. shows, guests must confirm that neither they, nor members of their household, have traveled in the last three weeks to a place given a Level 3 Travel Health Notice by the CDC. As of Tuesday, these places include China, Iran, South Korea and Italy.

In addition to “The Bachelor, other Warner Bros. programs affected  by the new protocol include “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”; NBC’s “The Voice”; CBS sitcom “Mom” and daytime talk show “The Real.”
