Precautions corona virus
Borealis is closely monitoring advice from national and local public health authorities in Norway regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, and following their guidance.
A decision has been taken in consultation with Bergen Emergency Health Centre, Norwegian Public Health Institute and Bergen City Council to cancel involvement in the festival of artists from areas of continuous transmission of COVID-19. This includes areas in Northern Italy. The artists concerned agreed to this decision even though none of them have shown symptoms.
The festival will provide antibacterial gel dispensers at ticket desks at the entrance to all venues for audience use, and information posters about general handhygiene have been hung in all our venues, and distributed to all visiting artists and delegates.
We encourage all our audience to keep up to date with the advice of public health authorities.20200129-Hygieneplakat-engelsk
