Covid-19 might be the virus version of a “Karen”- coming in like a juggernaut and ruining everyone’s plans for 2020 and delaying all of our favourite movies, but Hollywood is finally opening back up with productions either starting or resuming. But it is by no means business as usual…With health and safety concerns paramount, cast and crew, especially actors, will be forced to follow a series of rules and protocols to battle Covid-19 and remain healthy on set. It might be hard to admit, but the stars are probably the least expendable in a movie as they are literally the face of it, and therefore their health must be protected by the studio at all costs- meaning they have to follow some uncomfortable rules that I am sure they are “thrilled” to follow.

We will take a look at some of the most recent rules and regulations they will have to follow, such as social distancing protocols, making awkward scenes even more awkward, and having to go above and beyond for their role. These are some of the rules that actors have to follow in a Covid filled world…

What did you make of these rules? What movie are you most upset about being delayed? Let us know in the comments below and make sure to follow us on social media and to subscribe to the channel for more content!

Hollywood is NOT open…. Insurance companies are not writing poicies yet and FilmLA is NOT issuing any permits until at least AUGUST. There are some commercials I've seen filming and non-union shoots, but Hollywood Studios? Nope, nothing yet. SAG is NOT on board yet, nor can IATSE agree to the new protocols they have written up in the 2 white papers circling around town. If you have read the white papers, you would know all the bs hoops they will expect everyone to jump through. COVID squad on set and Crafty cleaning up everything all day! LMFAO, c'mon!!

The only group of people who are immune to Coronavirus are the famous YouTubers. I mean most of them are wandering and still going on a roadtrip even without mask!!! And they're still healthy as sh*t!

Nobody is going to use Union people if they have to follow these rules. It'll just be the last nail on the coffin for the establishment. Indy film makers wont do any if this.

So, in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19 they have to get rid of… everything interesting:. No props, makeup, dialog,, standing near each other, intimacy, and hand-to-hand combat.

If they made a self-isolating bubble with the crew and/or actors then they ease things but that means limited to no access to the outside world while filming.

I know that they released a few newer movies on demand since movie theaters were closed. Wonder if they’ll keep doing that after the pandemic ends
