Recording Work during Covid-19

Our advice for recording session musicians working in a studio during Covid-19 pandemic.

Last updated: 03 February 2021

This information refers only to recording session work undertaken in England. Recording studios in Wales are open. In Northern Ireland remain closed by law currently. Advice will be updated as and when this situation changes.

The Scottish Government has recently published new guidance for creative studios and shared workspaces, which the MU fed into and which you can read on their website.

The decision about returning to the workplace or performing in public is one that only you can take. You must make sure that you take adequate steps to review any relevant guidance and come to a sensible decision based on your own enquiries.

The MU’s advice is for general guidance only and does not represent any instruction, encouragement or advice to return to or begin work. The MU can accept no liability for the consequences of your decision including any illness or other adverse impact.
