Here you will find safe and sanitary procedures that have been developed in collaboration with producers to create live theatre as the pandemic continues to abate in the United States. Equity developed these protocols with the supervision of 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 guidance to the left contains a summary of the necessary rider for vaccinated workforces during the pandemic as well as the intake worksheet for productions with unvaccinated companies. Please reach out to a business representative for the official rider you can use for your production. You can also find the requirements for in-person callbacks and more.
The left includes a list of authorized PCR tests for Equity productions. However, please also consult the FDA's website
for an up-to-date list of how testing is evolving given current COVID-19 variants.
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.
