General Hospital spoilers say that everyone is back in action! There are new reports that say the hit ABC soap is now back in production again after taking a short break because of the Omicron variant. However, multiple actors have shared on social media that they have now gone back to work. Here’s what you need to know.
General Hospital Resumes Production
“Big grin, don’t care!” Finola Hughes (Anna) posted to Instagram on Jan. 10 with one of her new official ABC gallery photos. “Back to GH tomorrow.” What’s more, Laura Wright (Carly) shared one of her new promo pics and wrote: “First day back in Carly’s World in 2022!”
It was reported just last week that General Hospital would be halting production to help stop the spread of the new COVID-19 variant, Omicron (it’s not like we haven’t heard that before about two years ago, right?). According to sources, ABC took the step out of an abundance of caution, but not due to any show-specific COVID outbreaks. While there are about a handful of shows that are currently on break, General Hospital is expected to resume production sometime next week. As of press time, the temporary pause is not expected to impact any of the show’s on-air schedules. Because the soap tapes approximately one month in advance — and had already worked ahead a little extra because of the planned holiday break, their schedule has not been affected by the halt in production.
Reports say that the Omicron variant is currently causing a lot of disruption in life across the country. New York City’s hospital beds, both including Covid-19 and all non-Covid-19 patients, are currently around 80% full. Meanwhile, organizers of the Grammy Awards, scheduled for later this month, have postponed the event, citing the current Covid-19 surge. What’s more the Biden administration is opening additional testing sites across the country.
