I don’t understand why you couldn’t just answer my question and we can have a discussion like two adults. Your answer makes me assume that you have no idea what you are talking about.

The job isn’t that simple. COVID halted production for several months and that’s ALOT of money being lost. Equipment, studios and rentals are all still expecting to be paid regardless of filming happening or not. So shutting down for even just a day can cost a production in the 10s of thousands. The issue with covid is that it’s so easily transmisible. So the real risk is someone being asymptomatic and getting a main cast or director sick. Then you can’t film for 10 days and that’s a lot of money being wasted.

So the unions got together and came up with covid safety protocols.

So the job is much more than what you just assumed. COVID team has to test everyone based on their designated zone. That’s 300 plus people a day at times on certain productions. This gets complicated because people take days off, miss test, and even can’t find time during the day to make it to testing. That’s just crew. Cast must also be tested but since actors aren’t on all the time and fly around alot, they must be concierge tested to keep in cadence. Then comes the backgrounds actors.. they must be tested before a fitting (if the production requires fittings) then also tested again before coming on set. That’s tracking maybe 600 people’s test a day. Positive cases then require tracking down any close contacts and keeping the person off set until they are cleared to work again. The back to work agreement also states that mask must be worn indoors and that’s maybe the hardest part. Crew is predominately made up of entitled people whose dad or uncle work/worked in the industry and got them the jobs. So they don’t like to follow the mask rule. It’s a constant struggle of reminding them to wear their mask and them complaining on their personal covid beliefs and why they don’t want to follow a rule. In this persons situation, the higher ups wouldn’t help. So I’d assume a lot of things went bad and production shut down due to covid and they fired her for it. I still didn’t mention the 6 feet, off site testing, air scrubbers, and space requirements needed for catering and holding. To answer your question, like an adult. What I find useless , is talking shit about things I have no idea about.
