AMC’S the Walking Dead, Taking COVID-19 Precautions

Like many shows, AMC’s The Walking Dead is back to in production now. And, like other productions starting back up, AMC’s The Walking Dead production team is incorporating new safety measures to keep cast and crew safe.

According to star Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), that includes the use of wearable tracers to monitor how long people are spending time in close proximity with one another. Along with wearable tracers, Reedus also said “There’s a ton of rules now. Everybody’s masked up or has shields on. They take our temperature right off the bat. We get tested three times a week. We do the rapid testing.”

Beyond new safety measures that AMC’s The Walking Dead is introducing on set, the show is conceiving new ways to stage scenes, and the action that viewers are seeing on screen. Reedus recalled “I just fought with a zombie last week, and usually you’re kind of face to face and you can roll around together and have fluid movements and it doesn’t hurt your body as much. But instead of the fluid-rolling-around sort of style, he has to stiff-arm me to get his face out of the camera.”

This is one example of how the entertainment industry has had to adjust during the COVID-19 pandemic. With production trying resume, it is more important than ever to be safe and health conscious with cases on the rise again.
