Covid Rate: $62/4 *Please note that this rate is only paid after you have made it to set for the shoot day and is added as a bump to your set voucher. This means that the testing payment is contingent upon you attending the filming day. Failure to show to a filming date will forgo your testing payment unless it was deemed by Health and Safety that you are not eligible to work due to a positive Covid test, in which case you will be paid for the Covid test day only as you will then be unable to work for 5 days.
NOTE: If you take a Covid Test on a date that you film, you do not receive the testing fee.

*Health Protocols are established individually by each production. You need to follow all the protocols. The production company is your Employer of Record, and this information will be needed if you have to report earnings for unemployment purposes. If you do not receive a voucher for this project because you are paid via W-9, we strongly suggest that you take a photo of any paperwork related to payment. While we check with each production to confirm they are following Health Protocols - You acknowledge you are going into a high-density area, and while we will make our best effort to protect you, nothing is failsafe, and if you contract COVID-19, 4 Star Casting is not liable. Any health matters that may arise would need to be directed to the production that is hiring you for this specific project.*
