29TH ANNUAL SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS®
COVID-19 SAFETY REQUIREMENTS AND PROTOCOLS
UPDATED AS OF MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2023
The 29th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards endeavors to make this event as safe as possible. The health and well-being of our nominees, guests, staff, and crew are our number one priority. We are working closely with a COVID compliance agency to ensure a safe ceremony and are in compliance with local government and industry COVID-19 protocols.
The SAG Awards will follow public health authorities’ guidelines and recommendations, as well as any venue and/or COVID-19 production restrictions. All attendees including credentialed media and publicists, ticketed guests, talent, production crew, and staff must agree to comply with all COVID Related Restrictions.
Please note, we are continuing to monitor the evolving situation and this policy is subject to change based on guidance from health and safety officials or changes in state or local safety mandates. While we are enacting all precautions that are practical for a live award show, attendance at this event will not be 100% without risk. If you are not comfortable with this limited risk, we advise that you do not attend the event.
COVID-19 SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
To protect the health and safety of ALL attendees, there is a COVID-19 safety protocol that will be strictly followed during the production of the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards. Failure to comply will result in denial or termination of your access within the premises.
ALL ATTENDEES WILL BE REQUIRED TO:
(1) PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINATION PLUS ONE BOOSTER SHOT (IF ELIGIBLE)
(2) PROVIDE PROOF OF A NEGATIVE COVID TEST (ANTIGEN OR PCR) WITHIN 72 HOURS OF ARRIVAL AT EVENT
PROOF OF VACCINATION + BOOSTER SHOT & NEGATIVE COVID TEST
The SAG Awards has partnered with CleanSTART to verify COVID-19 vaccination cards and testing results for all in-person attendees (credentialed media and publicists, ticketed guests, talent, production crew and staff). You can use the link below to upload your vaccine card and negative covid test result. No app or account is required.
CleanSTART Covid Vaccine and Negative Test Verification Form
Again, we require all attendees to be fully vaccinated with the primary series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine plus a minimum of one booster, if eligible. Attendees will also need to submit a negative test result (antigen or PCR) within 72 hours of the individual's first appearance on-site.
