Ahoy Captain Cats here and huge news for the world of Film and TV in the state of California.
Last Friday Governor Gavin Newsom of California announced his guidelines for Film and TV production restarting in the state of California. Here are the following guidelines that were released by The California Department of Public Health:
“Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.” – The California Department of Public Health
There is no word yet if parts of California are allowing Film and TV production to restart by June 12, but this is a small step, a good small step in the right direction.
