This guidance was emailed to AGMA companies and AGMA members today.

This Emergency Guidance addresses the recent, dramatic surge in COVID-19 cases in many AGMA companies resulting from the Omicron variant. These guidelines are especially important for companies currently in the midst of holiday performances, such as The Nutcracker and other holiday concerts.

While much about the Omicron variant remains unknown, AGMA’s Expert Medical Advisory Board anticipates a rapid increase in positive cases over the next few weeks. To continue performing, the Medical Advisory Board recommends that companies and Artists take the following steps found in this guidance.

As always, AGMA’s goal is the safety and success of our Artists and companies. Any proposed changes to existing safety protocols must be reviewed and discussed with your AGMA staff representative prior to implementation. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation as we continue to work through these challenging times together.
