Guildhall School of Music and Drama is to reopen next week, seven days after shutting down due to coronavirus being contracted by a member of staff.
In a statement, the drama school said: “Guildhall School of Music and Drama will re-open on Monday 9 March, following advice from Public Health England.”
Guildhall announced a temporary period of closure earlier this week, after confirming that a member of staff, who had come into contact with students at the school, had tested positive for coronavirus.
The school said the member of staff in question was recovering well in hospital, but it has not confirmed whether the virus has been passed on to any students.
The theatre industry is beginning to feel the effects of the outbreak in the UK, with some performances and events cancelled over coronavirus fears, however no major productions have yet been affected.
