England moved to the final stage of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown on 19 July 2021, with Covid-19 legal restrictions ending. Whilst this means the adoption of production guidance is no longer mandatory, it is recommended that productions continue to operate as they have been doing, applying industry Covid-19 guidance in line with the production’s own Covid-19 protocols and risk assessment to provide an effective measure against both health and business continuity issues. The BFC’s incredibly rigorous Covid-secure Film and High-end TV production guidance enabled our sector to restart swiftly and safely and remains in place. Practices are now established and followed by studios and productions, who all seek to prioritise the safety of cast, crew and public. In the long term, we expect that productions will need to take fewer precautions to manage the risk of Covid-19 and guidance will be kept under review, and removed once it is safe to do so.
