As social distancing becomes the norm amid the global coronavirus outbreak, Hollywood has shut down production on many hit TV shows. It’s an unprecedented situation, to say the least: The industry experienced similar shutdowns during the 2007–2008 writers’ strike, but this time, the stakes are life and death.

A look at the small-screen celebs who have spoken out about being tested (positively or negatively) for COVID-19.

Between disruptions to the TV business and the film industry, Hollywood could suffer a $20 billion loss, per The Hollywood Reporter. And the shutdowns also mean fans might not see the intended season finales — or series finales — of their favorite shows.

Not all productions are directly impacted, though: Some TV shows had already finished filming their current or upcoming seasons by the time Hollywood started shutting down. Scroll through the gallery above to see how three dozen shows — including the One Chicago and NCIS franchises, The Bachelorette, Outlander, Grey's Anatomy, Law & Order: SVU, and more — are or aren’t affected by the outbreak.
