As Equity continues to work with Dr. David Michaels, former head of OSHA during the Obama Administration, on establishing safe and sanitary procedures for theatrical work during COVID-19, we will update this page with new information as it becomes available.

Our work is based on the four core principles Dr. Michaels identified as necessary to support safe and healthy theatre productions. You can learn more about these principles in the memorandum Dr. Michaels sent to Equity on May 15, 2020.

On June 24, 2020, we also made available a set of testing guidelines along with examples of tests that theatres have found that meet these guidelines. These guidelines were updated on September 1, 2020
