After announcing that people will have to show a NHS COVID Pass to enter nightclubs and attend events in Wales, the Welsh Government has extended the use of COVID Pass to theatres, cinemas and concert halls from 15 November.
The measure is being introduced to help control the spread of coronavirus – cases are currently very high in Wales but the alert level will remain at zero for the next 3 weeks.
- The BFI have useful advice and guidance, including a recovery plan for the sector.
- The Film & TV Charity have launched an online community platform that supports mental wellbeing. It’s accessible and free for everyone who works in the industry 24/7.
- The Welsh Centre for Action on Dependency and Addiction also offers free substance abuse support services.
- The NHS COVID-19 app for Wales and England can be downloaded here. It is additional and complementary to the existing Welsh Government test, trace and protect measures, and businesses, including cinemas, should continue to collect and hold current contact data on their customers (for 21 days from their visit) and employees. We would similarly advise that production companies and education practitioners collect and hold current contact data on their cast, crew and those they work with.
