Following the Government’s announcement on new restrictions in England, the Scottish Government has made a similar announcement – with limits on gatherings being reduced to a maximum of six people from two households from Monday, unlike England, children under 12 will not be included.
We're waiting for further clarification on how this will affect musicians.
We have been assured that the full guidance and a list of exemptions will be published before Monday and we will of course let members know as and when that has happened, keep an eye on our twitter channel and our regular Covid-19 update emails.
Let us know what questions you want answers to
In the mean time we are gathering any questions that you might have to inform a new FAQ section next week. Let us know what questions you’d like to ask and we’ll try our best to cover them when we have more information, either by adding to our thread on twitter or emailing twitter@theMU.org
Pressure the Government to act now and protect musicians
Despite constant pressure from the MU, the Government’s response to the issues that the coronavirus pandemic is causing for our members remains woefully inadequate.
Help us make the case to the Government for vital financial assistance for musicians by completing our new survey. It takes less than two minutes to respond and will help us make the case for the Government. Don't forget to share it!
