The Producers Guild of India has come up with a ‘Back to Action report’ recommending standard operating procedures (SOPs) to be instituted whenever the permission to resume production activities is granted by the government.

It offers guidelines for almost every department and professional at film and TV shoots.

The new practices include temperature checks, sanitisation, social distancing, work-from-home where possible, downloading of the Arogya Setu app on phones, limiting the number of cast and crew, avoiding outdoor shoots, and the presence of a medical team — in two different shifts — on sets for the initial three months when shoots begin.
