The Society of London Theatre (SOLT) is an organisation that works with and on behalf of their Members to champion theatre and the performing arts.
The government have today announced their Autumn and Winter plan for tackling Covid-19 – this applies for England, with separate announcements for other nations. The detail can be found here. Vaccine passports are not being compulsorily introduced at this stage, but may be mandatory in their Plan B scenario if cases rise such as to put pressure on the NHS. Details can be found on page 24 of the document. It is not clear if they would apply in theatrical settings with fixed seating. We are asking for clarity on this. Other sections of the document include ventilation and travel.
