Actors' Equity Association has promised to listen to and act on feedback from their members, and their updated restrictions on performing theater do not reflect updated CDC guidance or a best attempt at getting their artists back to work. We are calling on AEA to:

1. Assemble a committee of occupational health and safety specialists to develop new guidelines that integrate those already put in place by the film and television industry, as well as accurately reflecting updated information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

2. Remove clauses in the guidelines that hold producers responsible for COVID-19 cases within acting companies even if they are contracted outside of work.

3. Remove sections of their guidelines which require theaters to obtain ICB/TTAB certifications from HVAC specialists -- specialists often not found in rural areas of the country.

4. Ease mandatory weekly testing requirements for vaccinated individuals.

5. Assemble a team of certified specialists to review, respond to, and approve production proposals in lieu of AEA's current system of passing all proposals through one individual, Dr. David Michaels.
