Last Updated: July 24, 2020 @ 10:57 AM

“General Hospital” will begin airing new episodes starting on Aug. 3.

The ABC soap resumed filming on Wednesday following its four-month shutdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. It will become the second soap, following “The Bold and The Beautiful,” to get back behind the camera. “The Bold and the Beautiful” aired its first new episode on Monday.

“General Hospital” has been airing reruns for the last few weeks as the stockpile of pre-taped episodes ran dry at the end of May.

As part of that show’s new safety protocols, the cast and crew are all tested for coronavirus on a daily basis. The show has also hired a COVID-19 director who is on set at all times to make sure proper protocols are followed as set forth by L.A. County, the City of Los Angeles, and each of the Hollywood guilds.
