As Hollywood gets back to work under CDC recommended COVID guidelines and industry compliance regulations, there’s a team behind the scenes helping to make sure productions are doing all they can to support a COVID safe environment and get back to work with minimum risk. That team is Community Attire, a PPE company that film and television production heads have been counting on to help them meet the challenge of acquiring and maintaining all the equipment and protocols required on set.
Dancing with the Stars, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Red Bull, Redrock Entertainment, Top Chef, Amazing Race, Below Deck, America’s Top Dog, Braxton Family Values, Nailed It, Vice TV, and the BBC are just a few of the top line productions working with Community Attire to provide the safest work environment possible for talent and staff.
The company, led by Chris Myers, provides trained experts in adhering to the guidelines and best practices from the WHO, CDC, and the Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers. Their effectiveness is based on their firsthand knowledge of the industry and ability to liaise with GMs, producers, production heads and/or COVID compliant offices to best ensure protocols are followed to support production deadlines, budgets, and safety for all involved. Their on-site COVID team members are certified in COVID awareness for industry and department-specific challenges such as camera, sound, hair & make-up as well as LA film protocols for Zone A/B/C systems.
“Working with Chris and his team gave us peace of mind in knowing we were giving our talent and production staff the best tools available to minimize risk and work confidently. Their inside knowledge of the industry was a bonus and allowed them to integrate seamlessly into our day-to-day production,” said Jenifer Hersch, Vice President of Production, Redrock Entertainment.
High on the list of services Community Attire provides production teams is on-site, mobile, and concierge COVID PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) and Rapid Antigen and testing, PPE, sanitizing products, full on-set disinfection of high traffic areas and equipment, as well as the ability to provide mandatory trained COVID compliant officers.
“Our job is to help film and television productions stay nimble to adjust to COVID safety challenges on set by working alongside them to provide the best environment to work so filming can stay on track,” said Chris Myers, CEO/Founder, Community Attire. “It’s great to be able to lend our expertise and services to help people feel good about going back to work.”
