Live Performance During the Recovery Period

Advice for those performing live under current social distancing guidelines, or remotely and online.

Because so little is known definitely about the way the virus behaves and, given the possible consequences of exposure are so severe, at present advice should err on the side of caution.

The decision about returning to the workplace or performing in public is one that only you can take. You must make sure that you take adequate steps to review any relevant guidance and come to a sensible decision based on your own enquiries.

Our advice is for general guidance only and does not represent any instruction, encouragement or advice to return to or begin work. We can accept no liability for the consequences of your decision including any illness or other adverse impact.

To that end, we have put together advice for those returning to workplaces, for those postponing work and for those finding ways to work remotely and online.

Remember that if you return to a workplace, it is a venue’s responsibility to perform a risk assessment, although there are also some personal safety measures that you should be taking into consideration.
