IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE: Effective Immediately In-Person Programs Temporarily Suspended

March 9, 2020


Dear SAG-AFTRA Member,

Due to the precautions taken by SAG-AFTRA regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the SAG-AFTRA Foundation will temporarily suspend in-person programming to include: Conversations, The Business, Casting Access, Small Group Sessions, LA and NY Voiceover workshops, and the NY Computer Lab, effective immediately.

The LA & NY On-Camera and Voiceover Labs will remain open for audition recordings only. Our staff will continue to disinfect the equipment after each use. We ask that members who use these facilities do not attend if you feel unwell. You will not be penalized for the late cancellation of these sessions. If you should arrive and you appear unwell, you will be politely asked to leave.

All appointments for emergency assistance in Los Angeles will remain open, but we ask that you arrive in good health, if you should become unwell, appointments can be rescheduled over the phone.

We know that our resources and services are important to you, and we are working to create online alternatives for classes, workshops and panels. As soon as these classes are confirmed and available online, we will send you a notification.

We apologize for this inconvenience, we are taking these steps for everyone’s continued safety and will inform you when our in-person programs resume.


SAG-AFTRA Foundation Staff
