  • A Quick Question re/ LA's Latest Shut Down

    Los Angeles has just shut down again due to COVID-19. It seems pretty extensive and includes all bars, gyms, restaurants, and hair salons. Does anyone know if this will affect B&B's filming?

    Given they already have protocol in place I don't think they will shut down again. They get tested every morning and every evening when they leave for work. They are also only filming in the studio with bigger sets spread apart. I'm pretty sure the governor knows how vital TV and Movies are to LAs economy and probably won't shutdown B&B unless absolutely necessary.

      I hope you are right. However, I have a bad feeling that they will be shut down again.

      I live in Florida, where the numbers are as bad as in LA. The only reason we are still open is that the governor refuses to authorize another shutdown.

      Clearly, something needs to be done. Unfortunately, no one knows what that is.

    I haven't heard if it will impact filming, but I wouldn't be surprised. Some areas made the decision not to have school meet in person for the fall in California. Unfortunately, things aren't getting better there.

      If CBS studios does shutdown again. It will probably be temporary anyway not permanent

        My gut feel is that they will eventually be shut down again, which is a shame because they have already announced a starting date for the new episodes and a brief synopsis of what we will see. They have gotten people excited about the show, which is great, and they need to build on that momentum.

        That being said, this virus is a beast that isn't even remotely contained. Many of the southern states, including my own, opened too soon and the consequences are terrible. Currently, it is doubtful that the Republican national convention will occur in Jacksonville, based on our current numbers. Likewise, things in LA have rightfully closed up again. I want to see B&B succeed. I really do. However, it isn't worth risking people's lives over.

          I agree, it’s not worth risking lives over. They probably should wait for the vaccine.

            Agreed sadly with all of this.

            Even with protocols in place like no kids on set, stand-ins for love scenes etc. it seems like it would be difficult to get things running again fully the way things are going.

            So many people work behind the scenes to consider- cameramen, wardrobe, makeup, set dressers, script supervisors etc.

            Maybe they can figure out a minimalist way to film, who knows lol. Here's hoping!

            I miss doing live theater/musicals so much it is suffocating. I am sure the actors AND crew miss their jobs as well!

              I am wondering how that filming will work out under these circumstances.

              It is reasonable to not use children actors, but it also has to affect storytelling when the children had been such a part of many SL's recently.

              .... Will Spencer normally being affected by his parents latest heartbreak, Douglas staying with Lope after Thomas had put pressure on Douglas and had talked about wanting Douglas to "break" so that Hope would "break", Steffy's daughter and Hope's daughter a big part of their lives since both girls still have been so young (no boarding school writing for them) .... .

              I am also not sure how it works with the "stand ins", using a human like doll, using the camera angle..... - but maybe that will work out just fine. Filming can do really wonders (making it look as if normal people are dwarfs or giants...).

              _______

              But about the general COVID situation.... it is just so unpredictable. New measures needed depending on the changing situation.


              Here in Austria the situation is kinda okay. We have 8,8 million people and currently per day we have a rate of less than 100 newly infected (today there have been 73 new cases).

              - But we still have new measures implemented - no planes allowed to land from Balkans, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Egyp (and there was already a ban for planes from Belarus, China, Britain, Iran, Portugal, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine).
              - we have politicians discussing if there should be again a duty to wear masks when you go shopping, to the supermarket,.... .


              Our schools are now closed (summer holidays) but some have been open for holiday care - and today one small elementary school in a suburb of Vienna had to close that holiday care and has to be disinfected because two people from a cleaning service have tested positive - and now anyone from that holiday care should go into quarantine, let themselves be tested either.... .

              We already have rules in place that only a limited number of people are allowed in the public swimming pools. But now they talk about reducing the number again because it is still too difficult to keep the ordered distance when people go swimming and have fun at the pool.

              Because there aren't that many new cases, the official plans are to differentiate locally (stricter measures in areas with a high number), but because of these local measures it is not always clear for people what is allowed.
              (in some areas of carinthia you have to wear a mask after 9 pm because then more people in the holiday destinations are out and partying - and the safe distance might be at risk at bars, clubs,....).

                  They didn't have any guidelines before, but they get tested everyday. I would think they would keep it open just for the fact that they can catch it very early if someone ever did have a positive case.

                    But here's the thing. You can't "catch it early" if you are in a high risk group. Once you are exposed, you are far more likely to have a negative outcome because your immune system is already compromised. That's why many people in Florida are so outraged. The people spreading it here are 20 and 30-year-olds at the beach and the bars. Most of them will survive it. But, they bring it home to their parents and grandparents, who don't have a strong enough immune system to fight this virus. The result: the idiot who went to the beach is fine, but grandma is on a ventilator.

                    If they are going to keep filming, I HOPE that everyone behind the scenes is still self-isolating. I also hope they don't put all of their faith in "testing." You can get this virus from a person, a shopping cart, or a doorknob five minutes after you have a clean test. And, you need to test negative twice over a ten-day period to be sure that you DIDN'T get it from a suspected source.

                    I really hope that B&B is doing this right. The numbers in Los Angeles are crazy.

                  Very good and positive point!!! (NO pun intended!) I had not considered that aspect.

                    Will they really limit filming for cast members 65+? It wouldn't be that big of a deal on B&B, but it would be for Y&R..

                      Is this about a cut number for the actors "age"?

                      But isn't John McCook already 76 years old and I thought he too had talked about filming again?

                      If he is back to filming, I hope it will be more like they did with KM (when she had left) and it will be Eric being on a business trip and just doing video calls to interact with the family - they doing they best to keep him safe and limit his interactions with too many people.

                      ________

                      Or is that about the maximum number for the people on set?

                      That is still a high number and everyone still had to interact with others in private life ( going shopping, interacting with kids, relatives, going to the doctors/dentist ,......).

                      I had read they were going to be reducing the amount of hours cast 65+ were working, since they're more at risk for the virus due to their age.
