Democrat & Chronicle: Saturday Night Live’s COVID-19 plan? $150 checks for audience members to meet restrictions

Democrat & Chronicle: Saturday Night Live’s COVID-19 plan? $150 checks for audience members to meet restrictions. “The venerable NBC sketch comedy show opened its 46th season live from Studio 8H in New York’s Rockefeller Center on Saturday, welcoming a live audience in a state that has some of the most restrictive COVID-19 rules in the country. New York’s coronavirus restrictions for media productions such as SNL make clear media productions can only have a live studio audience if it consists entirely of paid cast, crew or employees. That’s where the check came in.”
