FAQ to hire a C19CO

No. But they do have to be certified.


How many COVID-19 Compliance Officers should be on set?

The C19CO should be a stand-alone crew position with no other on set responsibilities.  Health Education Services suggest 1 officer for every 20 people.  A Key C19CO should manage their team and be point of contact for production.
