Information regarding courses and drop-in training

Cirkus Cirkör follows the Public Health Agency's advice for school and leisure activities. Yesterday two press meetings were sent, one with Stefan Löfven and one with the Public Health Agency.

At the press meetings, new guidelines was recommended by  the Public Health Agency and the National Agency for Education. They recommend that schools should avoid physical contact in the physical education lessons as well as avoid even smaller gatherings. For the courses and drop-in training this means that we will take a two-week break starting today Wednesday March 18 to April 1. If the guidelines of the Public Health Authority and the school authority continue to apply, the break will be extended.

Cirkör's pedagogical department will keep in touch with course participants through email and inform those who train at the drop-in training in the dedicated Facebook group.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns: cirkus@cirkor.se.

The Public Health Agency is now seeing signs of community spread of covid-19 and urges anyone with symptoms of respiratory infection, a cold or sore throat (even mild ones) or fever, to stay home and avoid social contacts to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

Cirkör has taken the following steps:

  • Informed all staff (office workers, educators, artists) that if they have been in a risk areas they should not come to the the Cirkör House (or any other location they work at). They are asked to stay at home for at least 14 days, be symptom free for 48 hours, and to be in contact with their nearest manager before returning to work.
  • Been in contact with Manegen, the Swedish national member organisation for circus, variety and street performance, who has temporarily paused all training in the Cirkör House.
  • Contacted all course participants and people at the drop-in training that we have a temporary break in all activities.
  • Posted signs in several places at the Cirkör House with information regarding our guidelines and general hygiene recommendations.
  • Added extra cleaning shifts and ensured that hand-sanitizing stations are available and functional in washrooms and other public spaces in the house.
  • Continous updating on the recommendations from the Public Health Authority in order to be able to quickly inform about any changes.
