Tyler Perry,

Tyler Perry was filming by mid-July 2020 – right in the thick of COVID. He implemented a quarantine bubble model where cast and crew are sequestered on the lot for the duration of a shoot. This weekend, the bubble will end at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. According to Deadline, “the move follows a mass vaccination event at the studio this past Saturday, April 3. Perry, who covered the logistical costs, contracted Grady Hospital whose staffers set up the vaccination site at TPS for his entire crew and their family and friends who had not received a vaccine yet.” See more here
