General Hospital (GH) spoilers say the show’s a step closer to getting back up and running again thanks to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s newly released guidelines. The film and television industry is obviously a huge deal for the state, so everyone’s been waiting to hear exactly what those guidelines would entail. June 12 has been revealed as a possible first day back for the General Hospital cast and crew, so that’s great news for GH fans.
Let’s look at the latest updates from the California Department of Public Health. Music, film and TV production can start back up, but approval from county health officers within the jurisdictions will be required. As for that date we mentioned, the guidelines insist a return to production is recommended no sooner than June 12.
In other words, that’s just the earliest possible recommended date. Some productions may resume later, but it’s good to have a timeframe for when this could reasonably happen. Of course, there are plenty of rules to follow.
The priority certainly has to be the safety of everyone involved, so the cast, crew and other industry workers will have to abide by all the necessary safety protocols.
That means implementing things like social distancing along with testing and anything else to reduce the chances of spreading COVID-19. Local epidemiological data will also be examined as part of these guidelines.
If you’re wondering what falls under that category, it includes things like the number of cases per 100,000 population and preparation in the event that there’s a health care surge.
Deadline reports that hospital capacity is an important issue – one that could affect whether L.A. County is allowed to reopen. There’s a chance that county may be delayed, but the governor has been in talks to potentially reopen some areas sooner than others.
It’s important to mention that hospitals in LA. County was a rise in cases on June 5, which is the day these guidelines were released.
Here’s what Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer had to say. “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations,” Ferrer stated.
That’s something that’ll need to be monitored, but GH viewers are definitely excited that the end of the shutdown may be in sight!
