The use of face masks will be required for all (staff only) personnel in the production area. 

  • All staff with the capability to work from home will continue to do so.
  • A minimum of three feet of on-set distance will be required for all video subjects, talent, and staff.
  • Separate vehicles will be driven to film on-location as much as is feasible.
  • Upon arriving to the filming location, work will be done separately when possible. Each crew member will maintain a safe distance from subjects and location staff.
  • To further eliminate the need for close contact, pole-mounted boom microphones will be used to record audio. If the situation requires a lavalier microphone to be clipped to the subject’s clothing, our PPE-equipped audio technicians will provide fully sanitized equipment and keep contact to an absolute minimum


  • All hand-contact surfaces will be thoroughly disinfected with CDC-approved sanitizers multiple times daily. This includes doorknobs, light switches, alarms, keyboards, touchscreens, phones, office equipment, vehicles, package delivery, and any other area on which contact contamination is possible.
  • All audio-visual equipment will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after every shoot.
  • For fieldwork, all gear will be prepped and loaded in a fully sanitized condition.
