From the Prime Minister’s statement on 10th May:

“We said that you should work from home if you can, and only go to work if you must. We now need to stress that anyone who can’t work from home, for instance those in construction or manufacturing, should be actively encouraged to go to work and we want it to be safe for you to get to work. So you should avoid public transport if at all possible – because we must and will maintain social distancing, and capacity will therefore be limited. So work from home if you can, but you should go to work if you can’t work from home.”

A shoot is something necessarily done at a studio or location so this is express permission (which already existed) to travel to a studio or location to produce a film. Of course, Government regulation must be complied with in doing so and we recommend in addition, complying with the APA Covid-19 Shooting Guidelines which provide additional safeguards.
