The sixth film in the Jurassic Park franchise became the first major movie to resume production amid the COVID-19 crisis, as lockdown restrictions began to ease over the summer.

In order to do so, cast and crew had to isolate together for months, without being able to see their families, and a total of 40,000 novel coronavirus tests were carried out in the process.

According to Deadline, the Jurassic World set was equipped with a 'Greenzone', which saw staff temperature-checked daily, a slew of medical staff on hand and isolation booths at the ready.

Pinewood plastered 1,800 COVID-related signs around the studios and added 150 hand sanitiser stations as well as 60 more sinks for hand-washing. At the end of each day, all communal areas were antiviral fogged.
