AVGS always makes health and safety a cornerstone of our work. Based on the latest State of California and City of Los Angeles guidelines, we are pleased to confirm the following for all incoming productions:

  • If AVGS receives valid proof of vaccination (including booster) for all crew, talent and guests, it is permitted for productions to be maskless while inside our facility. Any individual who cannot prove their vaccination status, or is unwilling to provide proof, must wear an appropriate, correctly fitted mask at all times while indoors, and maintain strict 6 ft. minimum social separation.

Or:

  • If AVGS receives valid proof that all crew, talent and guests have tested negative within two days prior to facility entry (PCR test) or one day prior to entry (antigen test), it is permitted for productions to be maskless while inside our facility. Any individual without a verified negative test result must wear an appropriate, correctly fitted mask, and maintain 6 ft. minimum social separation, all times while indoors. Productions must also test all crew, talent and guests every three days, and provide AVGS with proof of test results, to enable the maskless policy to continue.

In addition, AVGS will continue to follow the following protocols for our own staff, with additional precautions implemented where necessary:

  • All stage personnel must be fully vaccinated and boosted
  • Daily staff temperature and health checks on all working days
  • Rigorous hygienic cleaning of all equipment, props and surfaces
  • Clear floor markers, one-way systems and strict safety monitoring
  • Contactless craft services, with all meals pre-packaged
  • On-site COVID testing available by an accredited health partner

Our policies will continue to evolve in line with accepted film and television industry protocols, and further guidelines, policies and mandates from government. Together, we can maintain safety as well as the open creativity and collaboration that goes into everything we do as a professional, united production community. Contact us for more information.
