COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

The Crew Company implements policies that are part of individual production’s COVID-19 safety guidelines.  

Guidelines MAY include the following:

  • Production company hiring the crew maintains the right to take the temperature of each crew member prior to entry on set, and reserves the right to refuse entry if crew
    member exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19. These symptoms include a dry cough, fever, sore throat and muscle pain.
  • Production company reserves the right to request proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Some productions may choose to test crew members for COVID-19 prior to hiring and enact quarantines during shooting timeline. All costs covered by production.
  • Some productions may require every crew member to sign a review of symptoms checklist before arriving on set.

    Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
  • All crew members will wear PPE at all times, such as; clear face shields / masks covering mouth and nose when requested by location.
  • All persons on set to maintain at least 6′ apart for proper social distancing when requested by location
  • Non-Essential crew will stay out of room/off set (if possible) during filming when requested by location


Set Safety

  • Do as much location shooting outside when possible.
  • Label hand and lapel/clip mics with the name of the user. Take off mic covering (black sponge) daily and wash in hot water and anti-bacterial soap
  • Once production starts, the director should limit takes to make sets more efficient and result in less standing around/congregating time.
  • Frequent hand-washing should be encouraged throughout each day, and if possible a sanitizing station should be set up at each entrance and exit to/from set.

Meals

  • Any person handling food should thoroughly wash their hands beforehand and wear gloves and masks.
  • Producer/Director should supply hand sanitizer at points of entry for all crew members and on-camera subjects
  • Food/Beverages:
    • No snack bowls or unpackaged foods 
      No buffets
      All drinks must be in single serve containers (ie: water bottles, cans)


Grooming

  • Mask / Face shield should be worn by the Make-up Artist or Hair Stylist.
  • Use disposable make-up kits and brushes and dispose of the kit after each application.
  • Assign brush / combs to each talent / interviewee so not to cross contaminate.
  • Grooming station should be thoroughly wiped down with a sanitizing solution between each person.
