The remaining shows "have now been canceled," his spokesman said, among other things, "Deadline".

The statement goes on to say: Chappelle implemented applicable Covid-19 protocols at his shows, "which include rapid tests for the audience and daily tests for himself and his team". Just because of these "careful tests" it was possible to "react immediately with a quarantine and thus contain the spread of the virus".
