Safety MeasuresCovid numbers keep declining.
Also, with moderate outside temperature in spring we can open windows and doors wide and bring lots of fresh  outside air in with fans.All of this should reduce transmission risks compared to winter with windows only partially opened. Even for winter, we have had no indication of infection in our classes in over 40 nights of dancing with the following actions and guidelines:
- Airflow and air exchange of inside and outside air- Do not attend classes if you feel any cold, flu, or Covid symptoms- Wash your hands before and after class or use provided hand sanitizer- Consider getting the flu shot and the latest Covid booster- Masking is optional- You can wear a provided sticker to dance with only masked dancersWe hope you feel comfortable dancing with our approach!The Connect To Dance community is coming back together, step by step, and in a positive way to care for each other.
