In the Infirmary of Milano’s opera house La Scala, a large-scale testing for all the members of the orchestra, choir and corps de ballet was started last Friday. They have to undergo the test before resuming activity inside the theatre. Superintendent Dominique Meyer decided this additional security measure after serological tests showed that many people from the artistic staff have come into contact with the virus in the most acute phase of the pandemic.

Meyer deemed it necessary to integrate the prevention measures due to the fact that during their professional activity especially dancers and singers cannot always wear the mask nor can they continuously respect the rules of distancing.
