Hollywood Unions Agree to Relax Pandemic Protocols on Movie Sets

Hollywood’s main unions agreed Monday evening to a short-term plan that will enable studios to require everybody on a manufacturing set to be vaccinated.

The settlement, which might be in impact by the top of September, may also chill out some pandemic protocols on manufacturing units, even because the Delta variant climbs and Los Angeles County places a masks mandate for indoor settings again in place. Studios might be ready to lower the speed of normal coronavirus testing and loosen masks mandates in outside settings.

The association was agreed on by the Directors Guild of America, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, together with the studios as represented by the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers.

The events mentioned they’d proceed monitoring Covid-19 developments and “will consider further modifications.”
