Dancing With The Stars‘ season 30 is one of the most entertaining shows airing right now. While the fans really appreciate the content from the show, there are obvious consistency they think needs to be addressed.

Cheryl Burke & her partner Cody Rigsby are contenders in the show. While both Burke and Rigsby got COVID-19 at different points, they were still able to make it in the second week of the competition.

This was possible after the show announced via Entertainment Weekly that both of the contenders will be allowed to participate despite being separately quarantined. Even the case of many couples staying apart, they’re still uploading reels of hanging out with other celebrities. That made fans question what guidelines on COVID-19 are they adhering to.

A representative of the show revealed to People that the guidelines they have is based on a “pod” system. They explained:

We follow CDC guidelines and a comprehensive safety plan that includes social distancing, PPE and KN95 masks. ​All of Zone A is required to be fully vaccinated, regular testing of cast and crew and more. ​On set we have a strict pod system, all couples have their own hair and makeup so the pods are no more than four people.

The show is still shrouded in controversies about it, but fans are hyped about the upcoming episodes of the show.
