As New York City enters Phase 4 on Monday, allowing production to ramp up, the Mayor’s Office of Film and Television today issued what it called a “plain language” guide to remaining restrictions on outdoor shoots on public property: They’re now limited to 50 people (up from 25), can’t interfere with hospitals or COVID-19 testing centers, can’t block streets, and can’t be close to restaurants with outdoor seating without the eateries’ permission.
