Please see our current policies and procedures below. These are in line with Berkley County guidelines to keep our dancers, teachers, staff, and families safe during this time. Our teachers and staff have undergone training on how to sanitize the classrooms and interact with our dancers based on the new social distancing guidelines to provide the best and safest class possible for your dancer.
What is exposure?
Per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), exposure occurs if a person has been in close contact (less than six feet) for greater than or equal to 15 minutes with a person with COVID-19.
What happens when an employee/student is exposed to COVID-19?
Once it is confirmed that an employee/student has been directly exposed to COVID-19, the employee/student will report their exposure to the owners of the studio, Nancy and Brenna, and be asked to teach/participate in class via zoom until a negative test result, and/or a period of 10 days with no symptoms.
If symptoms develop, we advise you to seek medical treatment at your discretion. The individual may return to the studio after at least 24 hours have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement of other illness symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell, headaches, etc.); AND at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. If an employee has symptoms of COVID-19 and tests negative the individual may return to the studio if they test negative for COVID-19 using a PCR test (nose swab, saliva test) AND a medical evaluation determines that their symptoms were more likely due to another cause (e.g. sore throat due to strep throat). In this latter case, the individual can return when they meet the criteria for that condition. They will also need to be free of
the following for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or
other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. cough suppressants):
