Our Policy & Operations Regarding COVID-19

Published August 20, 2020

Hand Held Films has implemented protective measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus through the use of our equipment and facility, in compliance with state regulations and CDC guidelines; all employees and visitors are required to wear a face covering at all times while on our premises.  At each entry point visitors are presented with free surgical masks and gloves, hand sanitizer, a thermometer, and a QR code link to our on-line health screening where they provide contact information, answers relating to travel and contact, and their current temperature–all medical information is confidential and will only be used to reduce the spread of the virus, completion of the screening is mandatory for entrance.

We have installed over 20 hand-sanitizing stations, placed no more than 25ft apart, and have five single-occupant restrooms stocked with anti-bacterial soap dispensers.  All work stations are surrounded by frames supporting vinyl sheets going from floor to ceiling, each of our prep bays are surrounded with vinyl roll-up curtains spanning the height of the floor to isolate production crews as they test equipment.  At the end of the day, we spray our equipment and facility with a fogger equipped with virus and germ disinfectant, and regularly open windows–at least once an hour–to provide ample circulation of fresh air.

All returns are quarantined for a period of no less than 24 hours, up to 72 when possible.  Before our staff handles equipment, it is sanitized with an alcohol solution; likewise, all surfaces are routinely sanitized and disinfected.

We are committed to social distancing and containing the spread, if you have any questions please contact rentals@handheldfilms.com

Warm Regards,
The Hand Held Films Staff

We’ve implemented physical and procedural measures to combat Coronavirus spread; clear barriers have been installed to limit exposure for our employees and clients, sanitizing stations are present throughout the facility, and all persons entering the building, employee or client, are required to fill our a health screening form and take their temperature. Our equipment is routinely cleaned using a sanitizing fogger.
