National Restrictions in England from 24 February – Covid-secure Film & TV Production Continues
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of changes to self-isolation rules in England from February 24th cast and crew working on film and HETV projects should continue to follow the British Film Commission’s Working Safely During COVID-19 in Film and High-end TV Drama Production guidance, the production’s own COVID-10 protocols and the production-specific Risk Assessment.
From February 24th suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 are not required to self-isolate by law. However, anyone who tests positive is advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least five full days, and then continue to follow guidance until they have received two negative test results on consecutive days. Those testing positive for COVID-19 are encouraged to inform their close contacts so that they can follow the relevant guidance.
