London’s Guildhall drama school closed due to coronavirus #COVID19 #coronavirus #London #UK #emergency #quarantine #epidemic


The principal of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London emailed staff and students shortly after 5pm today to say it would be closed for up to 14 days after a teacher was diagnosed with the virus. The email said:

We regret to inform you that a member of teaching staff has tested positive for Coronavirus. He is currently recovering well at the Royal Free hospital. He was present and teaching in one of the ancillary school buildings on one day last week. He came into contact with a limited number of students and we are working closely with those students to ensure that they receive urgent appropriate advice.

All meetings, performances, workshops, masterclasses and any other on-site school engagements in the next 14 days should be cancelled. Staff are encouraged to work remotely during this period and if they are in any doubt of how to do so should contact their line manager.
