Washington State Set Safety Requirements

Effective March 12, 2022 Governor Inslee rescinded the face covering requirement in most places. The joint SAG-AFTRA, the DGA, IATSE and Teamsters and Basic Crafts, and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers Return to Work Agreement has been modified and extended to September 30, 2022. We encourage ALL productions to continue to implement appropriate safety protocols to ensure the health and well-being of Washington's cast & crew.

As part of the guidance update, Washingtonians are now being asked to report all positive at-home test results through the Say Yes! COVID Test Digital Assistant

Visit our COVID Production Resource Page which serves as a resource hub for filmmakers and includes information about safety protocols, testing, personal protective equipment, signage, safety videos, and toolkits.

Please also take a look at our other COVID Resource Page — there are guides on how to apply for unemployment and navigate federal relief through the Small Business Administration, as well as additional resources for film and other creative industries.
