Coronavirus (COVID-19) and our Community:
We at Boston Lindy Hop want to take a moment to address the current concern regarding COVID-19 or Coronavirus. As many of us know, there has recently been an increase in the number of confirmed cases of the virus in Massachusetts. We have been monitoring the situation and doing our best to remain informed and up to date on all developments.
As of today, we intend to continue our programming as normal. In the meantime, we have compiled some guidelines and updated policies for community members. We ask that everyone abide by these guidelines in the interest of keeping our community (for dance and beyond) safe from this disease.
1. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY. Please wash your hands before a class or dance for at least 20 seconds with soap. Wash hands frequently, especially when taking workshops, multiple classes, or during a social dance.
2. IF YOU ARE SICK PLEASE STAY HOME! Regardless if you have COVID-19 or a seasonal cold, please refrain from taking class or social dancing until your illness has passed. Symptoms to be ESPECIALLY to concerned about include fever, dry cough, and shortness of breath. If you have these symptoms, please do not attend class and wait 72 hours after your symptoms have gotten better.
To encourage compliance with this request, Boston Lindy Hop policies to include equivalent class credit or refund for the cost of any class(es) missed due to illness. Please see https://bostonlindyhop.com/policies/ for the full policy, and if applicable, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request class credit or a refund.
3. DO NOT TOUCH YOUR EYES NOSE OR MOUTH. Touching your face with dirty hands is part of how the virus spreads.
4. If you are quarantined due to travel or having close contact with the virus, please do not attend until the 14 day period is ended.
Any additional information will be posted on the website/social media and/or sent to class registrants via email.
