The Real Housewives of New York has ceased production once again, after a cast member tested positive for Covid-19.

The cast member hasn’t been named, but a source told Page Six that their symptoms are mild.

According to the outlet, the Housewives were preparing to go on a trip to Upstate New York to mark the end of the show’s upcoming season when they found out.

The source stated: “The trip was canceled as part of the network’s strict safety protocols for cast and crew during COVID.”

The insider also said the show is proud to be “setting a good example” by following proper protocols.

The news comes after RHONY also halted production in October, after a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.

A host of Real Housewives stars have contracted the coronavirus over the past year, including RHONY’s Ramona Singer.

The 64-year-old announced her diagnosis last July, after she tested positive alongside her 25-year-old daughter Avery.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills also ceased production last year, after cast members Kyle Richards, Kathy Hilton, and Dorit Kemsley tested positive for Covid-19.
