In the context of the current health crisis caused by COVID-19, the Regional Ministry of Health of the Community of Madrid, our health authority, has established a series of preventive measures through a set of regulations to implement temporary and exceptional measures to contain COVID-19 for public health reasons.
The Regional Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Community of Madrid has assisted in clarifying the doubts about some sections of those regulations and has referred them to the Regional Ministry of Health so that they could explain their implications and appropriate implementation.
The clarification of the Regional Ministry of Health states that:
Audiovisual filming is considered a professional activity. Since most of the shoots are carried out on public thoroughfares, filming crews working throughout the Community of Madrid territory (including containment and prevention areas) are allowed to enter and leave these areas, with the corresponding justification and documentation issued by the production company. These rules are subject to order 961/2020 of 5 August of the Regional Ministry of Health , regarding audiovisual filming.
