Los Angeles Bans Overnight Location Filming Amid Stay-at-Home Order

Local government officials have pulled the plug on overnight location filming in Los Angeles for the next month due to the surge in COVID-19 cases.

Permitting agency FilmLA made the announcement Wednesday in the wake of the new limited stay-at-home order issued by the state of California, which took effect on Nov. 21 in order to pause all non-essential work and gatherings from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. The order runs through Dec. 21.

Officials from the City of Los Angeles and County of Los Angeles informed FilmLA of new limits on hours of filming. Permissible filming hours will be restricted to 7 a.m. to  10 p.m. in residential areas and 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. in commercial areas and any previously issued permits for after-hours filming have been rescinded.

“Local officials also clarified that pursuant to this action, no setup activity may begin earlier than the permissible

Permitting agency FilmLA has made an extraordinary pitch to producers to remain in “strict” compliance” with COVID-19 safety protocols as California tightens overall regulations.

The agency made the announcement Tuesday in the wake of the new limited stay-at-home order issued by the state of California, which took effect on Nov. 21 in order to pause all non-essential work and gatherings from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. FilmLA noted that California has viewed workers supporting the film, television and commercial production industry —who number in the hundreds of thousands in Greater Los Angeles — as “essential” for the state’s critical infrastructure.

“FilmLA is unaware of any plans to revisit or modify the state’s essential worker definitions, but new stay-at-home orders this week remind us that the COVID-19 pandemic’s progress is unpredictable, and new business regulation can affect any industry at the state,

Essential California: L.A. veers closer to stay-at-home order

Good morning, and welcome to the Essential California newsletter. It’s Tuesday, Nov. 24, and I’m writing from Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County’s explosive surge in coronavirus cases continued Monday, as county public health director Barbara Ferrer announced another record-high number of daily cases.

Last week, county officials outlined a tiered course of action for implementing more drastic restrictions, with the path forward based on the county’s five-day average of new coronavirus cases and daily hospitalization numbers. The plan was laid out in two parts, with one threshold that would trigger a suspension of in-person dining, and a second higher threshold that would trigger a new stay-at-home order. In a devastating blow to

Four Reasons the Stay-at-Home Economy Is Here to Stay

Technology has helped make life tolerable in the pandemic. And whenever it becomes normal again to leave the house for work, school and shopping, we won’t be going back to the way it was. What were conveniences before the pandemic now seem necessities that we’re unlikely to give up even after there’s widespread immunity to the coronavirus. And there are a number of reasons this new stay-at-home economy will likely be an important part of the new normal.

First, companies have made huge investments in the infrastructure needed to deliver goods and services to our homes quickly and efficiently, which means those products are now easier to use and often less expensive. Second, families have also invested in the services and gadgets to keep their members safe and sated while sheltering in place. Third, our habits have changed: Many people have gotten over the “hump” of adopting new technologies earlier

Zoom, Peloton, and other ‘stay-at-home’ stocks tumble after Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine proves extremely effective


  • “Stay-at-home” stocks including Zoom, Etsy, and Peloton tumbled in pre-market trading on Monday after Moderna revealed its COVID-19 vaccine was almost 95% effective in a late-stage trial.

News of a potential coronavirus vaccine breakthrough sent a combined $1.8 billion into the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (ticker IWM) at the start of the week, with Tuesday’s $1.55 billion haul clocking in as the fund’s biggest inflow since 2018, according to Bloomberg data. Then over $1 billion exited IWM over the following two days as U.S. cases spiked and fears of further restrictions grew.

The whiplash continued Friday, with IWM rising 2% to close at a record high. That beat a 0.9% gain for the tech-heavy Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 (QQQ). IWM bested QQQ by 7.2% this week despite its midweek stumble, the largest outperformance since April.

The claim: Wisconsin Supreme Court just struck down stay-at-home order 

A series of articles and Facebook posts surfaced Nov. 12 announcing the Wisconsin Supreme Court had tossed Gov. Tony Evers’ stay-at-home order.

This likely came as a surprise to Wisconsinites, who weren’t actually under a stay-at-home order. And hadn’t been since May.

It’s quite literally old news — the result of a mistake by one news organization and a lack of research by other posters.

Here’s what happened.
