Update on COVID-19 and Northern Ireland Screen operations
Date Posted: March 16, 2020
Following today’s announcement by the UK government urging everyone to avoid non-essential contact with others, and in the interest of public health, Northern Ireland Screen staff have been encouraged to now work remotely. Systems for remote working are already in place for staff across all agency departments and we expect daily operations to continue as normal where possible. Meetings will be conducted remotely via conference line, Skype, Zoom or Microsoft Teams. We hope that the disruption to work will be minimal and encourage all clients to communicate via email or call the switchboard on +44 (0)28 9023 2444.
We remain on hand to support production and infrastructure throughout this difficult and unprecedented time and will be closely monitoring the situation and following all guidance issued by government. We advise all clients and productions to do the same.
