The Prime Minister has now confirmed that all Covid-19 restrictions will end on 19 July, and all venues and businesses are set to reopen
The Prime Minister has now confirmed that all Covid-19 restrictions (with the exception of wearing masks in some situations) will end on 19 July. All venues and businesses are set to reopen, with the one-metre plus social distancing rule also to be scrapped, and no legal limits to be set on audience numbers indoors or outdoors.
This is great news for music events of any kind – although the test, track and trace system will stay in use and so could still impact some musicians who have checked in at a certain venue and are asked to isolate. We will be asking the Government to review how this system works for performers who work across a number of different venues every week.
