Datametrex (DM) will provide COVID-19 testing for a major US network and one of the largest streaming platforms.
Datametrex continues to provide critical COVID-19 testing kits for actors, film crews, and production support staff to prevent cluster outbreaks. Film and TV production companies all support the continued use of safety protocols, especially COVID-19 testing to keep production members and actors healthy and safe while employed on sets and in production offices.
Film and TV productions In Canada are concerned about the Delta variant (B.1.617.2. variant), a hyper-contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus strain, which was first identified in India in October 2020.
"The COVID-19 testing market is an important business sector for Datametrex and we look to continue supporting the film industry with kits and now with the Delta variant of the virus being the "the fastest and fittest," according to the World Health Organization, it is the right time to step up testing to keep everyone healthy and working," stated Marshall Gunter, CEO of Datametrex.
The fear is that an increase in Delta variant cases may well lead to a resurgence in health and safety restrictions not just in Canada, but internationally and deter global productions from filming. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called this version of the virus the fastest and fittest.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky, says the Delta variant makes up 83 per cent of all sequenced COVID-19 cases in the U.S. The city of Los Angeles has opted to reverse mask guidelines because of the Delta variant, clearly recommending that both unvaccinated and vaccinated people wear masks inside public spaces like restaurants, shops, and movie theatres.
