It comes after Jurassic Park: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow confirmed production had been paused after ‘a few’ Covid-19 positive tests, but added that the delay was simply a precaution as those who were infected tested negative ‘shortly after.’ 

The delay comes just days after it was revealed the much-anticipated sequel had been pushed back by a whole year to June 10, 2022, as film releases continue to be delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Colin tweeted: ‘Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion. 

Impressed: His spectacular display certainly impressed his followers, with plenty of his showbiz pals commenting on the post

‘All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon.’

However Colin seemed to find the humorous side in the delay, as he shared a snap of a dinosaur wearing a face mask.

A Universal Pictures spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Late last night, we were informed that the Jurassic World: Dominion production experienced a small amount of positive tests for COVID-19.

‘Even though subsequent tests proved negative this morning, due to our rigid protocols and to ensure that the safety and well-being of our entire cast and crew is paramount at all times, those who initially tested positive are currently self-isolating, as are those who they have come into contact with. 

‘As a result filming has been temporarily paused and will resume in accordance with established safety guidelines.’ 

According to Variety, the film was just three weeks away from completion when production was halted, despite numerous strict measures to keep the cast and crew COVID-safe.

It comes after the film’s release was pushed back a full year from   summer 2021 to June 2022, according to Variety. 

Filming started in February in Vancouver before moving to the U.K. in March, though production quickly shut down in mid-March, when COVID-19 started to spread.

The sequel was one of the first major motion pictures to re-start production with new COVID-19 safety protocols in place.
