On July 22, GH became the latest soap to return to production after it shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The show’s first batch of original episodes since May began airing on August 3.

Executive Producer Frank Valentini shared with Digest, “I am incredibly grateful to be back to set. I have missed my team and we have missed our fans. In returning to work, it was important to take every precaution in order to create a safe and smooth transition back to production. In addition to regular testing and distancing measures — we have hired a dedicated Health & Safety Manager to be on set to supervise all health and safety protocols and answer any questions as they arise. It’s important that every member of the cast and crew feel safe and confident.”

Laura Wright (Carly) added, “I’m thrilled to be back. This is my family, this is my home — I’ve been on the show for 15 years so it was hard to be away. Frank and ABC have been taking the utmost care in making sure we have had a safe environment to return to. We are all being regularly tested and are continuing to do our part on and off set — being mindful to practice proper distancing and most importantly wear our masks when we’re not filming. It’s good to be back.”
