Tyler Perry required everyone to wear masks for 12 to 14 hours and they had mandatory virus testing every three to four days.
ATLANTA, GA — “Camp Quarantine” and a strict plan is what helped Atlanta media mogul Tyler Perry successfully finish television production during the pandemic.
Perry finished production on “Sistas” early and kept the crew and cast healthy, reported CBS News. Everyone wore masks 12 to 14 hours a day while shooting the 22-episode season in Georgia. All staff had mandatory virus testing every three to four days and had to remain in their rooms until the test results were available.
They took a daily 90 minute lunch, reported Variety.
Perry had a 30-page plan and the crew lived on-site. New buildings that he called “Camp Quarantine” were built to house employees. He even had private flights for actors to shuttle to and from Los Angeles and New York.
