COVID-19 Guidelines

COVID-19 Proposed Health and Safety Guidelines

As of 5 p.m. EDT on July 30, 2021, the State of North Carolina has no statewide restrictions or measures imposed by executive order for the general public. That said, there are a number of local cities/towns that have enacted mask ordinances within their respective city limits.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services continues to strongly encourage those who are not vaccinated to continue to wear a mask and maintain distance in all indoor public settings as well as in outdoor settings where individuals can't maintain six feet of distance. Masks are also strongly recommended for everyone at large, crowded events and settings.

(Note that throughout the time of public health initiatives, restrictions on mass gatherings and the like have not applied to production sets as gatherings "for work" are exempt per Section 7 of Executive Order 141 and there have been no quarintine requirements for those coming from out-of-state)

Additional information about the State of North Carolina's coronavirus efforts can be found on the NC Department of Health and Human Services website.

While there are no film-specific guidelines or restictions for the state regarding COVID-19, the North Carolina Film Office STRONGLY advises productions to follow the guidelines presented by the The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force and additional safety procedures presented by a collaboration of industry labor organizations, which are available below for review (note that these documents may be updated as new information and/or modifications are made):
