Guidance on Face Coverings for Performers.
It can be difficult to keep on top of guidance and our National Drama Advisor,
Carole, is busy compiling information.
One area that has been very grey however was the wearing of face coverings
while performing and we have received several enquiries about this.
Scottish Government guidance has recently been updated and reads as follows:
“A person who is performing does not need to wear a face covering if there is a
partition between that person and other people or if there is at least 1m between
that person and other people.”
There are links to useful resources on our website https://scda.org.uk/covid/ and
these will be added to and updated.
