CURRENT MEASURES

12th February

England is in a national lockdown.

The new restrictions do not affect shoots - they can continue as before, including shooting in locations such as homes

All incoming travellers:

    • take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test and get a negative result during the 3 days before you travel
    • book and pay for a travel test package, which will include COVID-19 tests to be taken on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of your quarantine
    • complete a passenger locator form with details of where you will home quarantine when you arrive and the travel test package booking reference number

All previous travel corridors are suspended and the exemption to advertising production no longer applies

Countries from which travel to the UK is banned - the Red List- can be found here

Only British nationals/those with UK resident rights can arrive into England from a country on the Red List and from 15th February must then quarantine in a government quarantine hotel. Full information is here

The full government guidance on the new rules can be viewed here

TEST TO RELEASE is the system meaning anyone arriving into England can pay for a COVID test, quarantine for at least five days and if the test is negative they may then end quarantine but must still take tests on Day 2 & Day 8 as above

The UK commercial production industry, led by our industry body APA - Advertising Producers Association, has successfully created a set of government recognised guidelines to shoot safely and responsibly and these can be viewed here. There are no government restrictions on size although social distancing of 1-2 meters remains in place. Studio spaces are open, including Mount Pleasant Studio which is where our London office is based

As members of the APA we strictly follow industry & government guidelines of health & safety around COVID-19. Please do not hesitate in contacting us if you would like to discuss these in more detail and how the guidelines will work on a production. We are able to answer any questions you might have on the current situation & remote production practices and are able to prepare & budget for your future productions
