Since IGN is a global organization, we will be reviewing and covering films that may be available theatrically in some countries but not others due to local COVID-19 restrictions.
For films released theatrically, we will prioritize the health and safety of our critics and only review films that are being screened online, in a drive-in theater, or in territories where theaters are open and consistently adhering to government-approved safety precautions.
IGN strongly encourages anyone considering going to a movie theater during the COVID-19 pandemic to check their local public health and safety guidelines before buying a ticket.

The CDC guidelines on how to protect yourselves and others can be found here. These include what you’ve probably heard already:
The rest of CDC’s guidelines page is helpful, with good tips even if you don’t live in the US, so please check it out. For more, IGN has a full list of suggestions for how to help, and stay safe, during the Coronavirus pandemic.
