PROCEDURES FOR ACTORS TO FOLLOW TO DEFEND AGAINST COVID-19

  • Temperature will be taken and documented when you enter the building BEFORE you sign in each day, including all rehearsals and performances.
  • Actors will keep dressing stations and designated areas neat and clean, disposing of any trash and clutter. (Especially following each performance to allow for easy cleaning)
  • Actors will have no personal effects or decorative items left on their dressing station or in the theatre. (Items allowed to be left: Make-Up or anything performance related)
  • Actors will contact director and stage manager immediately if not feeling 100% (this includes minor symptoms such as a headache) and will not perform or be allowed on premises until risk has been assessed and permission is granted.
  • While Clear Space prefers to be your sole employer this summer, we understand that there are those of you who may wish to seek outside employment while working with us. Additionally, we understand that some local actors will be returning to work during this time. For all actors who are working outside of Clear Space we are requiring you to follow these guidelines: • Prior to arriving at Clear Space you have showered and cleansed your body of all potential contaminates. • You must wear a mask properly at work at all times and take the necessary precautions when dealing with the public. • Be an advocate at work, encouraging others to follow State and CDC guidelines (Wearing a mask, social distancing, etc.)
