COVID 19 / Coronavirus Status

  • All government restrictions have been lifted.

  • Dancing has started again on Monday the 6th September 2021.

  • The government strategy is to keep the infections spreading until the country reaches "Herd Immunity". As a result it is not a case of "if" but "when" we catch the virus. To combat this, & safeguard others, it is recommended that a lateral flow test is performed twice a week, & isolating when it comes out positive.

COVID 19 - Risk Assessment

  • There is a finite risk of catching Covid 19 when in close contact with others in the room. This is folk dancing.

COVID 19 - Mitigation

  • Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell. If in any doubt, take a lateral flow test before coming.

  • The hall will be ventilated as much as possible, so have extra clothing for the break, or for sitting out.

  • ​Hand sanitiser is always available. Use as frequently as you deem necessary.

  • Bring a face mask & wear it if you feel happier doing so.

  • Bring your own drink & biscuits for the break. The kitchen will be out of bounds.

  • If you are unhappy with the close contact of a ballroom hold, then make it clear at the time, that you would prefer a 2 hand swing instead.

  • Please, if you test positive, shortly after an evening of dancing with us, let someone in the committee know, so that we can all test & isolate to avoid spreading covid to others.
