Saturday Night Live suspended in-person production due to the coronavirus pandemic in March. But the NBC sketch show returned on Saturday with a live audience in seven months, Us Weekly reported.
The audience members are required to undergo rapid COVID testing before the show. Also, they must wear a mask.
New York City also ordered media productions to only have a paid audience, cast and crew. The SNL’s audience received a $150 check when they left the show in compliance with the rules.
