Coronavirus guidance for film and high-end TV production

Support provided by Scottish Government

What does this involve?

The Scottish Government has issued guidance to help film and high-end TV production safely resume in Scotland during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This guidance highlights relevant Scottish Government advice on physical distancing, public health and workplace safety which companies must follow when working in Scotland, as well as industry-specific guidance and resources for the film and television sector.

Any business planning a film or TV production in Scotland should first check the Strategic Framework and the protective level allocated to the area(s) where they will work, which will dictate the measures to be observed.

Productions should check the current level that applies to the area(s) they plan to operate. You can find out the COVID protection level for each local area in Scotland and get information on what you can and cannot do at each level.
