COVID-19 Policies & Procedures
Crew One Productions, Inc. (“Crew One”) will follow ALL relevant guidelines set forth by the federal government, state, county or city entity with jurisdiction over an event or gathering. We also plan to follow the relevant guidelines that will be set forth via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), the Event Safety Alliance (“ESA”) and the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”), in response to the COVID-19 pandemic as those guidelines and safety protocols are released and/or updated.
We realize that clients, venues and tours will be putting in place their own sets of guidelines in order to keep everyone safe and healthy. Of course, Crew One will do everything within reason to follow those guidelines, per your specific guidance and instructions.
Crew One recognizes the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic and intends to support every reasonable measure to slow the spread of the virus, including compliance to all sets of guidelines referenced above.
The Crew One management team is monitoring the situation closely. We are leveraging available industry resources and participating in events, including virtual town halls. These forums bring thought leaders together to share best practices and discuss the impact of the COVID-19 public health crisis on live entertainment. The ESA, ANSI and other groups (which include entertainment managers, production managers, venue managers, and promoters) are working hard to provide updates and their insight as to how we all move forward in this uncertain environment.
In regard to our clients’ request of possible procedures to be set in place due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, based on the latest guidance and available industry best practices, please see below for some policies that are being implemented by Crew One and its contractors as live entertainment events resume:
*Advise all contractors who are set to work an event that if they are feeling sick, or show any symptoms of the virus, to please call out of the event, self-isolate and seek medical attention.
*Any contractor who checks in for an event and has a fever (that number specified by the government, client, CDC, ESA, ANSI, the tour, etc.) will not be allowed to enter the venue and will be turned away from working the event.
*All contractors, PCs, Leads and any Crew One staff on site will wear face masks/face coverings at all times.
*All contractors, PCs, Leads and any Crew One staff on site will wear protective gloves at all times.
*Contractors will be advised to wash hands with soap during any breaks during said call.
*A Lead will be added to these calls to work on the floor with touring heads to help monitor social distancing during work and on all breaks, as set forth in the relevant guidelines.
*Once a contractor is cut from the call, they will leave the work site and not be allowed back in until load out.
*In regard to meals, show call staff, holding areas, etc., we will follow specific guidance of the tour or client, with the goal of keeping everyone safe.
We all know the conditions are changing, and that the above procedures may not represent a comprehensive list of new Crew One safety protocols at the time of your event. With the ongoing implementation of phased re-openings per state and local governments, Crew One commits that we will update our policies and procedures as necessary, consistent with applicable laws and industry best practices.
Our staff, our contractors, your fans, your staff, the band, the tour crew, EVERYONE’s health and safety is paramount.
