Covid-19 Guidelines 2022-2023 Season

2022-2023 Covid Updates

Listed below are the Fitchburg Board of Health and the CDC Covid guidelines, but keep in mind things are changing daily.
If You Test Positive for Covid-19: (Even if you are fully vaccinated and boosted)
1. Quarantine at home for 5 days. You do not count the first day of testing positive as part of the quarantine time. 
2. If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your home.  If you have a fever continue to stay home until it resolves.
3. Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days. 

If You Were Exposed to Someone with Covid-19 and have not been vaccinated, completed the series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine over 6 months ago, completed the J&J vaccine over 2 months ago and are not boosted: you do not need to quarantine as long as you remain asymptomatic, regardless of your vaccination status. You must wear a mask any time you are around others inside your home or indoors in public for the 10 days following your exposure, unless you are unable to mask*. If you develop symptoms at any time, isolate and take a rapid antigen or PCR test and stay home until you know the result. Take a rapid antigen or PCR on day 6. If you test positive, follow Isolation Guidance. 

Thank you for your continued understanding and support as our main goal for the New Year is to keep everyone healthy and safe, but to do so we need the corporation of everyone.


Covid Guidelines
1. There will be hand sanitizer available at the studio. We will have a touchless sanitizer station that will be in the lobby for use and there will be touchless sanitizer stations in each classroom and throughout the studio. We will follow the CDC guidelines for cleaning and sanitization. We have purchased the correct cleaning products recommended by the CDC and are EPA approved for all hard surfaces, bathrooms and also for our Marley floors and will clean the studios surfaces in between classes. 

2. Masks are no longer required to enter the studio. Dancers are also not required to wear a mask in class. Masks are optional. 

3. All students will use the main entrance and cubbies will be used to store dancers belongings. 

4. We have H13 HEPA Air purifiers for all three studios and one in the lobby area.

5. The wait areas will continued to remain closed for the 2022 – 2023 season. We have determined through the years of the wait areas being closed due to Covid that there is less distraction for our students, less bathroom breaks and instructors are able to get more done in the classrooms. There will be no water coolers in the studios. Students may bring in their own water (ONLY) labeled clearly with their name. The NO FOOD policy will be strictly enforced.

6. The bathrooms will be cleaned during the day and evening and will have anti-bacterial soap and hand sanitizer for use.

7. The changing room will not be used, so students will be required to come in full attire.

8. There will be NO lost and found basket again this year. Please clearly mark your child’s shoes, water bottles, etc. as anything left behind will be disposed of. 

9. Guidelines for Pre-School class ages 4-6, Into Ballet/Jazz ages 5&6 and Acro & Hip Hop ages 5+ – The first & second week of class, one parent at a time with their child will be allowed in the studio to get the child settled in the class. Once the student is in class, the parent must leave. We are asking that parents remain in the parking lot for the first couple weeks, just in case we need to call you regarding any issues with your child, such as bathroom use as our staff is not allowed to take them to the bathroom.

10. Guidelines for the Creative Movement class (45-minute class) – One parent/guardian will be allowed in the class with their child. 

11. At the present time we will only offer in-studio classes. No Zoom classes will be offered. If any mandates change, we will re-visit the use of Zoom at the studio.

12. All parents/guardians will have to sign a Covid -19 waiver form for in-studio classes. The form can be found on our website under recent news.

13. Dancers or staff experiencing any health symptoms should not attend class. The symptoms include; fever, cough/shortness of breath, excessive sneezing, fatigue, loss of taste or smell, body aches or headache.

Additional Covid-19 Policies:
1. All wait areas will continue to remain closed. We hope to have an class observation week in November 2022.
2. The dressing room will remain closed. Please pack a small bag with required shoes. Students will be allowed to use the Cubbies storage area in the studio. Students will enter and exit through the main entrance of the studio.

We look forward to and fun and exciting 2022-2023 dance season. We thank you for your continued support and loyalty and as always, our number one concern is for the health and safety of our students, staff and parents/guardians.

Thank you
