The new guidelines are meant to keep all members of the production, both cast and crew, safe and healthy. Among these new protocols are regulated testing appointments, sanitation schedules for the theatres themselves and steps to follow if someone within the company tests positive for Covid-19. Masks must be worn at all times, except for during rehearsals and performances. Additionally, shared or communal food is no longer acceptable.
There are more rules to read and get used to, but we can only hope that these guidelines help keep future productions up and running rather than shutting down suddenly due to an outbreak.
