COVID-19 Safety Agreement Extended Through September 30, 2022
The DGA, in partnership with IATSE, Teamsters and SAG/AFTRA, have negotiated with the AMPTP an extension of our current Covid-19 Safety Agreement, through September 30, 2022. The Agreement was previously set to expire July 15, 2022.
The Agreement keeps in place the workplace protocols and protections that have allowed for a sustained and successful return to work while at the same time allowing flexibility to address the changing nature of the virus. Right now, because of the recent surge, productions in all major production centers are implementing the stronger protocols in Part 1 of the Agreement.
As conditions change, the Agreement provides productions the ability to relax protocols in areas when they experience low COVID hospital admissions.
