These guidelines include:
-Wearing face masks or approved face shields when in groups or in confined spaces.
-Conducting daily health checkups including temperature checks and screenings for COVID risk factors.
-Requiring that those entering the film set are only essential workers.
-Maintaining social distancing standards whenever and wherever possible.
-Screening crew members, cast, and contractors and asking those who are sick or who have high risks for COVID transmission to stay home.
Film Set Safety for COVID Safe Production
In addition to the above standards, the OMPA also recommends the following essential steps be taken to ensure COVID safe video production in Portland:
-Disinfect interior settings prior to shoot day, during shooting and after wrap.
-Limit access to locations, maintaining closed sets at all times unless actively shooting.
-Training employees to recognize the potential symptoms or risks of COVID.
-Utilizing Zoning to reduce person-to-person transmission between departments on the film set.
-Using personal equipment and disinfecting between uses.
-Reducing the use of communal work spaces to limit groups such as Grip and Lighting from interacting closely with Set Dressing or other departments which could cause direct transmission between department groups.
