The filming on Floribama Shore of MTV was shut down on Wednesday for about two weeks after a production team member was tested positive for coronavirus.
While a renewal for the fourth season of the series has not been announced yet, the production on new episodes had been underway, which though, is not unusual for a hit MTV reality series.
After the positive coronavirus test, the cast and the members of the crew have been quarantined and are in isolation for two weeks at Lake Havasu, AZ, where the new season is being shot.
For all those who are unaware, the first two seasons of the hit series were shot in Panama City Beach, FL, on the Florida-Alabama border. In the third season of the series, the show moved north to St. Pete Beach, FL.
