How we handle the Covid 19 situation:

Malmö Live is a spacious facility with several entrances, this allowes us to keep distance from each other. When auditioning all applicants are dividend in groups of max. 15 and each group gets a specific check in time. Including the audition staff ( approx. 5 persons ) this is the max amount of people at the same time in the audition area. There will be one preparation room per player that will be cleaned in between every group. We of course ask you to stay at home if you have any kind of symptoms, keep distance to each other during the complete process and use the hand sanitizer provided.
