The Musicians’ Union (MU), which represents over 30,000 musicians working in all sectors of the British music business, has published guidance for its members concerning health and contractual matters relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

For the latest updates concerning Coronavirus, and for advice regarding future and recent travel, reporting and illness, self-isolation and what to do if you’re feeling unwell, the advice is to visit the government issued updates online and comply with all guidance provided.

For advice on hygiene and preventing the spread of COVID-19, the advice is to observe the advice on the NHS website with regard to the prevention of catching and spreading germs.

Regarding contractual matters, such as the right to refuse work due to health reasons, the right to receive payment for work which has been cancelled by the employer or engager due to issues related to COVID-19, and the force majeure contractual clause, visit the MU advice page.
