Here you will find safe and sanitary procedures that have been developed over months of collaboration with producers and work with Dr. David Michaels, former head of OSHA during the Obama Administration and member of President Biden's Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board, on establishing safe and sanitary procedures for theatrical work during COVID-19. The foundation of this work is based on the four core principles Dr. Michaels identified as necessary to support safe and healthy theatre productions. You can learn more about these principles in the memorandum Dr. Michaels sent to Equity on May 15, 2020.
The guidance to the left contains guidelines and the intake form for vaccinated workforces, intake worksheets for non-fully vaccinated productions during the pandemic, requirements for in-person callbacks and more.
Please submit the appropriate safety evaluation worksheet as soon as possible, but no less than three weeks prior to the first proposed day of work.
During the pandemic, Equity has implemented special remote work agreements and archive use agreements to exhibit work online. The union welcomes employers who are interested in issuing contracts for virtual performances, and interested parties should reach out to their business representative to learn more.
