Washington State Set Safety Requirements

As of January 2021, Washington State is in a two-phased regional reopening plan called Healthy Washington–Roadmap to Recovery. You can check the status of each region here.

Currently, the motion picture industry is allowed to resume safe operations in all regions of the state. All productions must comply with the state’s set safety requirements as listed in the Motion Picture Production COVID-19 Requirements that was approved by the Governor’s Office and the Washington State Department of Health.
