According to Trib Live, Christmas On Wheels was one of the first 2020 Christmas movies to start filming in Canada, post coronavirus quarantine. This meant following new, untested safety protocols. One of those safety protocols had to do with the customary kiss.
According to director Marita Grabiak, there were negotiations with the actors. “The executive producer asked me to feel out the situation with the actors.” After determining that neither felt comfortable kissing, they wound up agreeing to a hug and a dancing scene.
