Interesting. From what I've seen to this point, these guidelines don't go far enough, particularly with regard to addressing the risks presented by asymptomatic crew or cast members. But maybe the updated version will surprise me. https://t.co/zUKqFowGTl

With burgeoning talk of restarting production, I feel it important to point out that on set social distancing will be pretty pointless without extensive testing. Early guidelines from other productions made mention of testing individuals exhibiting symptoms, but made no mention of addressing the risks posed by asymptomatic spreaders. Studies have shown that virus-carriers are most contagious when they are showing NO symptoms, so this has to be addressed before anything can move forward. Productions will be walking the high wire without the insurance safety net whenever they resume principal photography, and they can’t afford any missteps. I think it’s going to be a lot harder on the smaller players while the bigger studios, with their deep pockets, are better positioned persevere.
I’m curious where my blog readers stand. Are you still going in to work? If you aren’t going in to work, how comfortable will you feel heading back when quarantine is lifted? Say, tomorrow? A month from now?
