The National Security Council (NSC) has released a set of standard operating procedures for six activities under the creative industry to resume.

According to a Harian Metro report, the six activities now allowed are animation and musical production, post-production works in studio, digital music production, song recordings in studio, as well as pre-production and shooting in studio.

The shooting in studio will encompass dramas, telefilms, commercials, documentaries, sitcoms, live streamings, as well as recording of art, heritage and cultural programmes without audience members.

However, all these activities are not allowed to be held in areas placed under the Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO).

Face-to-face audition is also not allowed, and it is encouraged to be held online, or via video submission by artists.

The resumption of activities are also subject to strict adherence to SOPs set, such as body temperature screening, checking in attendance at a presime via the MySejahtera app, observing physical distancing, as well as cleaning and disinfection of the premises.

Only a maximum of 20 workers are allowed to be involved in the stipulated activity at any given time.

The whole country, except Sarawak, is currently under the second Movement Control Order (MCO 2.0) to contain the spread of COVID-19, which has thus far infected 245,552 people in the country, and killed 896.

Globally, the coronavirus has infected over 106 million people and killed more than 2.3 million people.
