Statement from SOLT & UK Theatre on Covid contact rules in England

SOLT & UK Theatre Chief Executive Julian Bird has released the following statement regarding the need for an alternative to self-isolation, following news that the Government is extending restrictions around Covid contacts in England until 16 August:

‘Without an alternative to automatic self-isolation for casts and crew that come into contact with a positive case, more theatre and shows will be forced to close in England just as they are allowed to open in full. 

‘Given the strictly controlled working environment under which theatres are already operating, we need a testing regime to replace the current system as soon as possible and certainly no later than 19 July.’
