Safety Guidelines and Protocols


FIA has created this specific page to share resources and information regarding COVID19 related Safety Guidelines and Protocols for performers going back to work.

In order to help our global membership argue convincingly for ad hoc health and Safety measures to help performers go back to work in optimal conditions, and in order to give everyone access to information about what’s being done elsewhere, we are seeking to collect data and invite you to send any useful information (e.g. protocols, provisions, negotiations, etc.) to dluquer(at)fia-actors.comdmurph(at)fia-actors.com and abussche(at)fia-actors.com
