According to the newspaper, an internal email from MGM Resorts International officials on Friday said one of Copperfield's illusion techs had been exposed to the virus. Copperfield confirmed the backstage crew member's diagnosis on Sunday. In a statement, Copperfield said his entire crew would be tested again.
His stage show was one of several residency productions across MGM Resorts that reopened Nov. 6. The company said on its website that affected ticketholders will be offered refunds or exchanges.
