Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which include the most recently discovered strain causing the infectious disease COVID-19. The virus responsible for COVID-19 is not the same as the coronavirus responsible for the SARS outbreak of 2003, but the two are genetically related. The current coronavirus outbreak has devastated people around the world as well as businesses of every size that hire and employ them. It has severely impacted the entertainment and creative community. From acclaimed actor Tom Hanks to community theater casts and crews, from creative freelancers and boutique design studios to worldwide advertising agencies, and from indie film producers to international film and music festivals, devastating personal and economic effects have been and continue to be felt.
