Once again, production on "Jurassic World: Dominion" has been halted due to COVID-19.

"Woke up to the news we had a few positive Coronavirus tests on Jurassic World: Dominion," director Colin Trevorrow tweeted Wednesday. "All tested negative shortly after, but due to our safety protocols we’re going to pause for two weeks. Back soon."

The tweet was accompanied by a cute photo of a dinosaur wearing a face mask.

Production on "Jurassic World: Dominion" was already stalled at least once this year, when the pandemic lockdowns first began. On Tuesday, the movie's release date was pushed to June 10, 2022 — a full year later than its initial 2021 planned release

"Jurassic World: Dominion" is only the latest film to see a pandemic-delayed release. Potential blockbusters "F9," The Batman," the James Bond flick "No Time to Die," and "The Matrix 4" have recently been bumped as well.
