COVID-19 Proposed Health and Safety Guidelines

North Carolina is currently open for production and at this time there are no quarantine requirements for those coming from out-of-state.

As of 5 p.m. on October 2, 2020, the state is in Phase 3 (of 3) of its re-opening process and face coverings are required to be worn while in public places, both indoors and outdoors.  Note that while Phase 3 continues to have restrictions on mass gatherings, these restriction do not apply to production sets as gatherings "for work" are exempt per Section 7 of Executive Order 141.

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):
