SAG-AFTRA, IATSE and the Teamsters all subsequently joined with the DGA in the effort to create a document that represents what we believe to be a path for employers to provide a safer workplace for their cast and crew members in a pre-vaccine COVID-19 world. Taking action based upon these guidelines is an essential and necessary element of any such return to work.
These guidelines are our recommendations with respect to testing and department-specific protocols related to employees represented by DGA, SAGAFTRA, IATSE, Teamsters and the Basic Crafts (the “Unions”).
Start by washing your hands for 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Do this regularly all day long.
You will want to clean your work surfaces but also important are the high traffic areas you use all day like door knobs, light switches, refrigerator and microwave handles, drawer pulls, remote controls, toilet and faucet handles because one surface can be cross contaminated by another in one touch.
Use wipes or cleaners that disinfect 99.9% of germs and viruses.
Don’t forget to wash soft surfaces like throws, curtains and sofa pillows as often as possible. After cleaning it is important to wash your hands one last time.
