We hope you all had a safe and restful start to the New Year!
We are continuing to work alongside our Sister Unions and Guilds and the Studios to monitor the situation and make the best decisions to protect our Members every step of the way. The data has proven that at this time our science based safety protocols, regular testing and commitment to contract tracing has been working to keep transmission rates extremely low throughout our industry as compared to community transmission, at this time. As a reminder however, our protocols are only as effective as the commitment by all to work together to protect one another. We will continue to work with the City, County and State to determine the best course of action for our Industry.
If you are unsure of when your production will return from the holiday hiatus, we encourage you to reach out to your production directly. If you still have questions about a specific show or studio facility, you can contact your Business Agent directly as well.
