When "Days" stopped filming in March because of the pandemic, it had enough new episodes already filmed to air through October which allowed production to start up again on Sept. 1.
Safety measures were put in place, including regular rapid COVID testing, requiring masks, keeping socially distanced and limiting the number of people on set.
“Days of our Lives,” NBC’s longest-running series, is set in the fictional Midwestern city of Salem and revolves around the Brady, Horton and DiMera families.
The show debuted in 1965 and has earned 57 Emmy Awards including, in 2018, its most recent best daytime drama trophy.
When the soap was renewed in January, executive producer Ken Corday said in a statement that the cast and crew were "excited to continue delivering compelling stories to our loyal family of fans into this new decade.”
“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives” is the show’s now-classic voiceover opening, accompanied by the image of an hourglass.
A rep for the show didn't immediately return Fox News' request for comment.
