COVID GUIDELINES

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our volunteers, and those working at MTS. You must follow all safety instructions while participating in any project at MTS. Here you can look at a breakdown of the majority of our guidelines that everyone at MTS are required to abide by.

  • All members will practice social distancing while at MTS, including the parking lot, to the best of their ability.
  • All members are required to wash their hands or use the hand sanitizer provided every time they enter the building, including after a short outdoor/smoke break
  • All members will wear a face mask at all times with the exception of filming
  • All members will have to be checked by a non-contact thermometer at the door. If one’s temperature is too high (100.4°F or higher), there will be an area to cool down. If one still ranks above that, they’ll be required to leave the premises.
  • All members will be responsible for green lighting themselves before coming in for the day.
  • MTS staff will be responsible for sanitizing all high touch points before and after every rehearsal.
  • Scenes involving singing will be done through lip syncing. The vocals will be practiced and recorded beforehand. If the song involves multiple people we’ll have a staggered call, cleaning the space in between vocalists.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By participating at MTS you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. We thank you for taking the time to read through this audition call, and look forward to seeing your videos.
