Regarding COVID-19 / Coronavirus
Date posted: 11.03.2020
Like many, we have been closely monitoring the news about COVID-19 / novel coronavirus and the impact it is having on the wider world as well as the screen industries and various international events.
We care deeply about the health and well-being of all, including citizens in the UK, the global screen industries and beyond.
We are regularly consulting guidelines from the World Health Organisation and NHS to ensure that we are correctly responding to the matter.
Up to the end of last week, it has been largely business as usual, with production continuing across the UK – and since then we are aware of US studios taking their own precautions to protect cast and crew as they feel is appropriate.
We are aware that both US and UK companies have their own policies and guidance in place and each company and production needs to be able to make those decisions based on what they consider to be in the best interests of their staff, cast and crew.
We remain on hand to support production and infrastructure throughout this difficult and unprecedented time and will be closely monitoring the situation and following all guidance issued by the government. We advise all clients and productions to do the same.
