These guidelines are based on the law and guidance for filming in the UK.

• The current Government guidance to people with symptoms of Covid (and other respiratory infections) is to stay at home if they have a temperature or if they do not feel well enough to work. Also to avoid contact with people whose immune systems mean they are at higher risk.

• If you do test positive, the government recommendation is to stay at home for 5 x days from the day you took the test.

• Production companies as employers have responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. By that Act we continue to have a legal duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety, and welfare of anyone who has contact with their business (employees, freelancers, contractors, members of the public etc.).

• The latest UK Government guidance on how businesses should control COVID-19 risks, as well as these Guidelines, is considered (and relevant parts implemented) as we work through business’ safety management procedure.

• There are no longer travel restrictions for passengers entering the UK. Unless passengers are entering the UK from Mainland China, testing requirements and strict procedures remain in place. These rules do not apply if your journey to England started in another country and you only transit ‘airside’ through mainland China. If you transit ‘landside’ (you pass through border control), then these COVID-19 travel rules do apply.
