When Hollywood powerhouse Tom Hanks took to Twitter and announced he contracted COVID-19 while on location in Australia, as did his wife Rita Wilson, the industry took notice of the dreadful reality of this novel coronavirus. Indeed, a fair statement is that the country and much of the world took a sharper look at the dangers associated with COVID-19 when a person who truly can be described as a “household name” contracted the infection. 

Of course, news of Hanks and Wilson having been infected with COVID-19 on their latest motion picture project has now become only two of many people in the industry who’ve contracted the disease, including individuals who’ve lost their lives. When this news and later stories highlighting the impact of COVID-19 on the industry, the infectious disease remediation specialists at Eco Bear were already hard at work developing strategies to prevent coronavirus contamination and to remediate contaminated sites.

Film and Television Production Insurance Requirements During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Production-related legalities are frustrating in the best of times. Perhaps nothing is more challenging than satisfying requirements established by a production insurance company. In the end, because an insurance company is called upon to provide coverage if a production is shut down or interrupted for certain reasons, an insurer necessarily is engrossed on points that must be met before coverage is made available.

In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, insurance companies that provide coverage for film and television productions have a sharp focus on a myriad of issues associated with the impact this virus potentially could have on a project. An insurance company is going to want to see a clearly delineated, comprehensive strategy to reasonably protect against COVID-19 contamination in the first instance and to remediate rapidly (and safely) a suspected coronavirus contamination.
