COVID-19 Reopening Plan From Studios, Unions & Producers Submitted to NY & CA Governors

Recommended Posts


Per Deadline:


[A] 22-page “Proposed Health and Safety Guidelines for Motion Picture, Television, and Streaming Productions During the COVID-19 Pandemic” document was sent to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday.


Along with procedures of cleaning, protection and prevention that other industries have already began implementing as America reopens in phases and surges from the COVID-19 crisis, the recommendations also want a whole new entity created for productions to ensure that safety is never compromised, at least in theory.

“An autonomous COVID-19 Compliance Officer(s) with specialized training and responsibility and authority for COVID-19 safety compliance and enforcement will be in the workplace to address issues as they arise,” the document states. “COVID-19 safety plan oversight and enforcement shall be the principal responsibilities of the COVID-19 Compliance Officer(s), provided they may be assigned additional responsibilities related to workplace safety.”

The full report from The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) can be found here: https://pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2020/06/iwlmsc-task-force-white-paper-6-1-20.pdf

This report was put together by AMPTP and the major industry unions including SAG, IATSE, and the DGA.
