To curb the spread of the virus, people who will deliver awards will be donning some dapper-looking Emmy tuxedo hazmat suit.''Actual hazmat suit was created and designed by costume designer Katja Cahill and executive producer Guy Carrington, who worked with a hazmat manufacturer to create them for the show,'' sources state.
