The COVID-19 pandemic took a significant toll on the film industry, causing the loss of thousands of jobs in filming, acting, production, and movie theatres. Given the continuous spread of COVID-19, many movie theaters around the country remain closed. Therefore, the movie industry continues to face many difficulties.
When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, filming and production in Hollywood ceased, considering safety concerns for staff and actors. But as we began to learn more about the SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19, safety protocols were put in place to help keep people safe. Some of these measures included installing plastic partitions, filming outdoors whenever possible, having staff wear masks when not in front of the camera, implementing rapid COVID-19 testing, and ensuring adequate disinfectant of frequently touched surfaces.
However, with these new protocols, the production of new projects became slower. This is counter to how quickly the industry used to operate before COVID-19.
With new safety measures, filming shoots now take longer and can be more expensive due to the testing and continuously disinfecting frequently touched surfaces costs. If there is a positive COVID-19 on set, the production must shut down for the required time that it will take for a person to test negative while studies accrue the cost of a paused production. Therefore, preventing the spread is key to keeping production going and costs down. Disinfectants that kill the SARS-CoV2 virus can help in preventing infection and slow the spread of COVID-19.
Keep Your Studios Safe
Using Avrika’s innovative disinfectant can help reduce the spread since it has 99% efficacy in denaturing the virus on plastic surfaces. This disinfectant can be sprayed on clothing and has been shown to continuously kill the virus that causes COVID-19 even after washing the fabric. Avrika’s disinfectant works by releasing its unique ions when sprayed on surfaces, which immediately destroy the wall of bacteria like MRSA and E-Coli, fungi, and viruses, including the virus that causes COVID-19.
There is still a lot of work to be done to stop the spread of COVID-19 since much of the world is still seeing a resurgence of cases. As winter approaches in the Northern hemisphere, forcing people indoors and people traveling for family gatherings, it is likely that infection rates will increase.
The filming industry needs to have disinfectant protocols ready when filming and production restarts after the holiday break to ensure the safety of staff, actors, and the overall film industry. Wearing a mask, a social distancing between scenes, hand hygiene, and disinfecting surfaces with Avrika’s new innovative disinfectant may be the key to the industry getting its second wind after the winter months.
Keeping Audiences Safe
With this innovative disinfectant, you can feel reassured that the surfaces you touch are virus-free. Avrika’s unique formulation kills the virus that causes COVID-19 via unique ions. It will keep you safe as surfaces remain virus-free for at least a week after disinfecting surfaces with Avrika.
Most importantly, Avrika is already widely used in other forms, and currently, there are no known health side-effects associated with this disinfectant. Maintaining social distancing and reminding movie theater guests to wear masks while in the theatre will help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Avrika’s disinfectant can be used at home since there are no known health side effects associated with it, and it is already widely used in other forms on the market.
Therefore, as filming resumes and audiences grow eager for new shows and new blockbusters, studios can keep their staff and stars safe by following local public health guidance on COVID-19 restrictions.
