Hundreds of thousands in the entertainment industry have lost their jobs. Virtually all live action production in the state has stopped. But now Hollywood has a plan to resume production safely.

A task force composed of representatives from production companies and unions said on Monday that it is sending its preliminary recommendations to Gov. Gavin Newsom, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. Newsom is set to unveil California's delayed guidelines on Tuesday.

The Industry-Wide Labor Management Safety Committee Task Force's report is filled with ideas for health monitoring and testing:. "Recommended options include electronic survey, manual screening and/or temperature spot-checks. Productions shall emphasize and reinforce to all cast and crew that working while sick with symptoms of COVID-19 is not permitted."

The 22-page report also details how social distancing might work on a typically crowded film set.
