The cast of Wentworth have reportedly been told to downplay the fact that production is still going forward despite the coronavirus lockdown in Victoria.

According to Mumbrella, Victoria's Department of Health and Human Services has allowed production to continue as long as there is a 'COVID Safe' plan in place.

An email was reportedly sent to the show's cast members, telling them it's 'wiser to stay below the radar' for the time being.

Mumbrella claimed that an email from production company Fremantle to the cast stated: 'We're not trying to hide the fact we are working through. Media are aware that production in general is continuing; however, in this current climate, it's such an emotive issue, [it's] wiser to stay below the radar.'

Fremantle also reportedly advised the staff to avoid drawing attention to filming on their social media accounts and during interviews.

'For the moment on your socials, please focus on promoting what is playing out on air rather than filming,' the email continued.
