Per a press release, the Big Brother production "will follow specific health and safety protocols" amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, "with the welfare of everyone involved as the highest priority."
The selected houseguests are currently undergoing a quarantine period prior to production and will continue to submit themselves for testing several times prior to entering the house.
Once inside the house, contestants will be tested weekly for COVID-19 and will come in no contact with crew members, with all supplies that are delivered to them being disinfected first. The live show will also not have a studio audience.

If a contestant from the core list tests positive for the viral illness, an alternative will step into the game.
