The National Film Development Corporation (Finas) is encouraging production crew and actors who are filming during the conditional movement control order (MCO) to get tested for Covid-19.
"The objective of Insentif Saringan Prihatin is to ensure the safety and health of cast and crew members besides curbing the spread of Covid-19," a statement by Finas read.
However, to enjoy the incentive, production companies must meet a number of criteria. They must be registered with Finas and filming activities must take place between Oct 14 and 27.
Also, each production company can claim a maximum of RM5,000 for the cost of screening. Lastly, screening must be done at panel clinic Megaklinik Zahran at Bandar Baru Bangi.
Production companies can also opt for Megaklinik Zahran to conduct the screening at filming locations.
On Oct 12, Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced conditional MCO in three locations Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya between Oct 14 and Oct 27 after a surge in Covid-19 cases.
