Barcelona Symphony Orchestra safety measures
To ensure the safety of the musicians, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra has put a number ‎of measures in place:‎

‎• During all rehearsals in June and July musicians will use the same chair, ‎which will be marked with their name.‎
‎• Music stands will be for individual use and will not be shared.‎
‎• Musicians will use photocopies of the score to avoid coming into contact ‎with the originals.‎
‎• The timetable has been modified to reduce the number of breaks and ‎minimise the risk of contact between the musicians.‎
‎• Musicians and all L’Auditori de Barcelona staff will have restricted access to ‎common areas in the building. ‎
‎• Body temperature checks will be conducted upon entry to L’Auditori.‎
