Torrey DeVitto Says New COVID-19 Restrictions “Thoughts-blowing”
Torrey DeVitto, the 36-year-old actress, resumed work on Chicago Med earlier this month after a few months hiatus. Bang Showbiz admits the new coronavirus restrictions that she and crew members must comply with are “mind-boggling.”
DeVitto portrays Dr. Natalie Manning on the show and she said there have been a lot of changes to the way they are filming the show now. She described them as “really interesting,” especially how well NBC had implemented the new restrictions.

Torrey praised the network for spending so much money protecting everyone on the set. One of the restrictions on the coronavirus is that the cast and crew must come by for testing five days a week. Every performer and crew member must be tested before work begins for the day.
According to DeVitto, the stars of the series are only allowed to remove their masks when they are filming. During a conversation with Us Magazine, Torrey stated that they are only allowed to take off the mask for 10 minutes at a time.
There is a timer that runs out every ten seconds, and when it runs out again you have to put the mask back on. The star went on to say that the whole ordeal is “intense” and she is often confused about everything because there are so many aspects of the new protocols.
While there are a lot of new regulations in place, Torrey admits she’s nervous about getting them from someone else. She doesn’t worry so much about herself but about the people around her.
However, DeVitto admits that she’s only grateful to be back to work as entertainment business jobs are currently sparse. Torrey doesn’t want to be the person who catches something and ruins it for everyone else.
NBC was just a network that had to shut down the vast majority of its programs at the start of the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year. NBCUniversal stopped 35 productions.
