Variety reports that the VH1 reality show finished filming Season 13 last week with the usual coronavirus precautions, including testing the talent three days a week. Production is already underway on one of the spinoffs. "In some ways, Drag Race was already set up to operating during a pandemic," says Variety's Adam B. Vary. "The drag queens who compete on the show historically have been sequestered for the duration of their time on the series, and one of the bigger sticking points for COVID-safe production, hair and makeup application, is a non-issue, since the competing queens all do it themselves. It’s unclear whether guest judges will still appear for Season 13. But the production has altered the main stage set in order to incorporate concerns over social distancing, expanding the judges’ table and placing glass panels between each judge."
