TV Blackbox reported at the time that production on the Channel Ten show had been ‘thrown into chaos’. 

Due to isolation requirements, members of the production crew, supervising producers and even host Beau Ryan were said to be off duty. 

In a statement to TV Blackbox last month, a Channel Ten spokesperson said that filming will continue. 

‘There have been a small number of positive COVID cases detected within the production of The Amazing Race Australia, but filming on the upcoming season has not been impacted,’ the statement read.
