Guidelines for organizers of cultural and entertainment events during the SARS-CoV-2 virus epidemic in Poland were developed by the Ministry of Economic Development, Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and Chief Sanitary Inspectorate, with assistance of the Institute of Music and Dance and Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute.
The fourth stage of restoring economic and social life means the possibility of reopening cultural institutions – theatres, operas, concert halls and cinemas. Cultural events will return after more than two months break. The coming weeks in cultural institutions will be key in terms of recognizing the audience expectations. Return of the audience will certainly be gradual and building trust will be important. Therefore, the directors and employees of cultural institution have an important task ahead of them consisting of proper communication with viewers and securing a space that meets the sanitary safety requirements.
The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage has provided a set of guidelines that are another, more precise, record of guidelines enabling actions with respect for restrictions and concern for our health. The key task is to adapt the possibilities of cultural institutions to these guidelines.
