Ford’s Theatre followed robust safety protocols for its filming of One Destiny in November of 2020.

  • All rehearsals and meetings were conducted virtually, including a mandatory review of all health and safety protocols that were in place for the video capture.
  • All personnel were tested within 48 hours of arrival on-site for filming.
  • All negative test results were received by the certified COVID-19 Compliance Officer (C19CO) before personnel were allowed into the theatre.
  • Work calls were staggered to ensure limited contact with others.
  • Before entry into theatre, the C19CO conducted private health screenings of all personnel, including a temperature check and review of any possible symptoms of infection.
  • Arrivals were staggered to personnel ensure privacy and safety.
  • Following entry and set-up, all personnel were restricted to their immediate work areas in order to limit contact with others as much as possible.
  • Everyone received personal kits, including masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and bottled water (and a face shield for wardrobe supervisor and sound engineer, should they need to come into close contact with actors).
  • All personnel always wore masks while on-site, except for the two actors during active filming.
  • Following testing, actors quarantined until filming day in order to retain original blocking.
  • All equipment and costumes were personally assigned to individuals and were disinfected before and after use.
  • Actors were assigned private dressing rooms.
  • All personnel had assigned bathrooms.
