California Film & TV Production to Resume June 12


California Governor Gavin Newsom has said that music, TV and film production can resume in the state as of June 12.

The reopening of the production sector is 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 a set of outlined office workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations.
