Details have been revealed about the safety protocols on the London set of Jurassic World: Dominion, which restarted production after being shit down due to the pandemic. The New York Times article mentions the safety protocols include “everything from the infrared temperature scanners the cast and crew encounter upon arrival to the vacuum-sealed meals provided by masked workers standing behind plastic partitions in the takeout-only cafeteria.”
Those working on the Universal film have been split into two groups. The larger of the two groups is made up of departments like construction and props that don’t need to be on the set when shooting is taking place. A smaller group, called the Green Zone, includes director Colin Trevorrow, cast members such as Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, and essential crew, like camera operators and the sound department.
The article mentions “Those working inside the Green Zone receive COVID-19 tests three times a week, and the sets are fogged with an antiviral mist before each use. The chairs that the actors sit in between takes are surrounded by orange cones to remind people to remain socially distant. When there is more lag time during a day, the cast can retire to a special Green Zone ‘living room,’ complete with couches, blankets, lamps, and plants. There are numerous sinks, and each time someone leaves or enters the Green Zone, he or she must wash hands. The costs associated with the safety protocols total roughly $9 million.”
Universal has also released a first look still at the film along with two behind the scenes images via the official Instagram page.
Jurassic World: Dominion, which also stars Laura Dern and Sam Neill, is set for release on June 11, 2021.
