BEFORE THE PRODUCTION

Everyone attending the production is called and asked the questions below to prevent anyone who has been exposed or experiencing COVID symptoms from attending.

Ask these questions.

  1. Do you have any of these symptoms that are not caused by another condition?
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • Recent loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  1. Within the past 14 days, have you had contact with anyone that you know had COVID-19 or COVID-like symptoms? Contact is being 6 feet (2 meters) or closer for more than 15 minutes with a person, or having direct contact with fluids from a person with COVID-19 (for example, being coughed or sneezed on).
  2. Have you had a positive COVID-19 test for active virus in the past 10 days?
  3. Within the past 14 days, has a public health or medical professional told you to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-19 infection?

Every person who is attending MUST answer no to all questions above within 48 hours of the production. If anyone responds yes to any of the questions above, a suitable replacement will be found. When booking cast and crew, everyone agrees to this stipulation for the health and safety of everyone.
