The producers are already working with the local government to set up a coronavirus testing regime for the cast and crew. The producer of Urban Myth, Johnny Capps, informed the fans about those rules. He said, “All engaged in the production must arrive for a temperature test the very moment they enter the location. If they do not have a high temperature, they are delivered a wristband and guided to an assistant director, and then they present their name and function. At this point, the person is given a color-coded armband, which defines what areas of the studio they can enter.”
Blue bands are kept mostly for office workers and means they are not allowed to enter the set. Those with red wristbands can reach the set, but not when the actors are present. Ultimately, green band wearers are in a tightly protected bubble with the cast, meaning they are allowed on the set while cameras are rolling. And the distance of two-meter is compulsory among all the members present on the location.
