Information for project leaders concerning COVID-19 (the new Corona viruset)

To control the spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19) and to anticipate its consequences, the Swedish Performing Arts Agency (Musikverket) follows the current developments and acts according to the guidelines and instructions as published by the Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten), as well as the decisions made by the Swedish government. We request all project leaders to do likewise, to update themselves on the situation, follow the instructions and make lawful choices concerning their projects. Musikverket understands that adjustments to project plans might be necessary because of the situation, or as a consequence of instructions and new legislation from the authorities, and that specific activities in the projects might be delayed. However, if project plans need to be amended, it is crucial that every project leader reports any proposed changes to Musikverket without delay and before they are implemented, so we can make a formal decision on the proposed changes for every individual project.
