Rehearsal Halls

Before or when arriving at the rehearsal space:

  • Ensure that people using transit, shuttles, car-sharing or ride-sharing adhere to all COVID-19 protocols
  • Conduct workplace screening as noted in Workplace Screening for all workers
  • Performers arrive already wearing as much of their hair/makeup and wardrobe as possible so as to reduce the need to use dressing rooms and hair/makeup and wardrobe stations

While at the rehearsal facility, all persons present are expected to:

  • Respect occupancy limits (only show up when you are healthy and leave when finished cleaning and disinfecting personal items, stations and other areas as needed)
  • Maintain 2 metres’ (6 feet) physical distance whenever possible with the exception for performers who need to be closer to each other for the purposes of the performance or rehearsal
  • Wear a mask or face covering in enclosed spaces, particularly when physical distancing cannot be maintained
  • Based on provincial guidelines, all people in the venue should wear non-medical masks/face coverings with the exception of performers when necessary for the performance
  • Even with non-medical masks/face coverings worn, staff and performers should maintain 2 metres’ (6 feet) distance
  • Disinfect shared tools and surfaces with which they interact (special considerations include dance barres, floors and audio equipment)
  • Stagger breaks, eating opportunities and washroom use
  • Only authorized persons should adjust lights, temperature, windows, doors and audio/video equipment, etc.
  • Consider changes to artistic vision as needed to comply with health and safety protocols of various agencies and facility requirements
