Both Kelley and Schiff star on the ABC series The Good Doctor, which tackled the pandemic in its two-part season premiere and is currently in production in Vancouver.

According to Deadline, the production on the show has continued while Schiff and Kelley are self-isolating.

The couple is believed to have contracted the virus outside of work as an on-set COVID transmission automatically triggers a production shutdown.

The makers have reworked the filming schedule to accommodate their temporary absence.
