Update to Scottish Funeral Services Guidance – Singing, Chanting and Music

June 9, 2021 by No Comments | Category Uncategorized

The Scottish Government has updated its Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for funeral services with respect to singing, chanting and music in small groups from level 2.

At protection levels 0-2, a small group of singers and/or musicians can perform at the funeral service. In all cases, this is provided the appropriate mitigations and safeguards are in place, in line with the risk assessment based approach set out in the performing arts guidance. The funeral organiser should agree the arrangements with the person responsible for their venue, including how many people would constitute an appropriately small group given the size and layout of the building.
