Gailoum Lemay-Tivirge responded Thursday evening to an article in the La Press published on Thursday evening, revealing that the 45-year-old actor and director had lost a production contract on the “District 31” show. Not vaccinated.
In a letter to the media, the actor admitted that he felt he should be adequately protected by the vaccine he was comfortable with and that its availability was initially scheduled for September.
“The approval of this vaccine has been postponed, but my intention to protect myself and others is a priority,” the “Masked Singers” host said in his letter.
“To this day, I have not shared or positioned myself in the media about my immune status or anyone else’s. This is personal and confidential information that has never been found in the public sphere,” he added.
By November 1, Quebec and its subsidiaries will need vaccination passports for all employees, suppliers, visitors, subcontractors and consultants.
However, the rules of vaccination on the television set are unclear, but a producer can inquire about the vaccine status of his team, but without the need to vaccinate his employees, as we read in the article written by La Harry.
For their part, vaccinated actors can stay in touch during filming, and this is, indefinitely, according to the Guide to Health Standards for the Performing Arts, Theaters and Cinema – Standards, Equity, Health and Safety at Work (CNESST).
“It is my duty to respect all actions required and issued by the Public Health Department, and this has been the case since the beginning of the health crisis,” Giloum Lemoy-Tivirge said in his letter.
“My thought process has nothing to do with my decision-making process and I need to go at my own pace in all areas of my life. This approach is personal and I will always respect others,” he said.
