Hadnít seen a post about it here, but this story is making the media rounds today:

JMFabiano:
Smart considering what both hosts have been through.  Plus it'll be easier to mask than, say, Price is Right.

Kevin Prather:
Obviously Alex is immunocompromised, but also don't forget that Johnny Gilbert is 95.

Jimmy Kimmel showed a clip of what TPIR would be like without an audience on Tuesday night's show.  Awaiting post here or find it elsewhere.

Here in Italy a recent "anti-virus" decree banned (among other things) all gatherings of people and enforces a 1-metre minimum safety space. 
All entertainment shows are now audience-free and gameshows are expected to follow suit when they run out of episodes taped before the decree.

This is Identity, the first to go "closed doors":

The contestant is using a "Close Encounter" help. Previously it was allowed even to touch the Stranger, but now this is how close the encounter can be.

In our version the value of each Identity is hidden in a passport. Normally the host walks over to the Stranger to collect the passport and reveal the value, now the Strangers do the reveal themselves.
