Coronavirus Information

Many companies are restricting non-essential travel, suggesting screening guidelines for international productions based on guidelines from the CDC, State Department and WHO. They are also suggesting people who are sick stay home. Precautions include frequent, 20-second hand washing, coughing into tissue, avoiding personal contact, and more frequent disinfection practices. Shows with live audiences are either eliminating them immediately or exploring ways to continue on without them.

Up-to-date information can be found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 website:

The Studios are also discussing contingency plans if the State or Local governments restrict travel, gatherings of large groups, and/or filming permits. The IA is in daily contact with the employers as this situation evolves.
