High-end TV and film productions are expected to resume in the United Kingdom (UK) as soon as employers put in place coronavirus safety measures.
The UK reportedly gave the greenlight but urged safety measures to be in place.
On Sunday, May 10, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, said people who can’t work from home should return to their jobs as soon as possible, once workplaces are “COVID-19 secure.”
The government has not been specific over whether this advice applies to shuttered high-end film and TV sets, but it is understood that the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is now encouraging the industry to return to work, reports Deadline.
According to reports,
The British Film Commission has been feeding into government plans by drafting industry-wide safety protocols for high-end UK film and TV shoots.
The draft guidelines are designed to keep sets safe from coronavirus by introducing measures including pre-shoot safety training, testing and quarantining foreign actors, reports say.
