Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Covid-19: What we now know about the disease caused by the novel coronavirus

Even though the government or heath ministry allows theaters to open their doors, there is no reliable data about how far the social distance should be on the stage and between the seats. While large droplets from the mouth and nose settle out under gravity soon, smaller particles can be airborne much longer, possibly hours if the air is not ventilated or circulated. So, in order to provide some idea as to how far each singer and brass/wind musician should stand on the stage, the UK government funded a research project to find how those clouds of exhaled breath, or the aerosol, stay in the air. Such guidance is badly needed to reopen theaters and music halls but the results of the research won’t come out until fall.

There is also a supply problem to theaters and music halls. Since most of the music or performing art tours are canceled and also unable to schedule for the near future, theaters can’t sell enough tickets to make their businesses especially when seats will need to be half empty to keep social distancing.

When will we be able to see and hear musicians on the stage and dance on the floor?

Enjoy reading the article and learn about the challenges in the live music business.
