UPDATE as of 12th August 2020 – IMPORTANT ADDENDUM FROM WORKSAFE: WorkSafe have confirmed that our ScreenSafe alert level procedure should remain the same with the addition of using masks. This means any work in the greater Auckland area will follow level 3 protocols and guidelines and the rest of New Zealand to follow level 2 until further information form the Government/Ministry of Health. Your health and safety is paramount so we ask you to all to ensure that you add the wearing of Masks for everyone, at every alert level above Level 1. Government recommendations are that wearing of masks where ever possible and where physical distancing is not achievable. So all crew, agency/client, visitors and talent whilst off screen should be wearing masks as best practice.
As it is not possible to wear masks whilst on screen we should still be allowed to film talent as per guidelines around each level, but please note this is also subject to all other control measures around hygiene and non-contact as per each Level of the guidelines.
It is now mandatory for any business or service to display the QR code for the tracing app at all entry points. Businesses have till Wednesday 19th August to comply. Download your posters here.
