Dynamic Ballroom is first and foremost a family-oriented business focused on the safety and well-being of our dancers and their families. We know that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a rapidly evolving situation and we will continue to monitor it closely. The studio is cleaned daily, but we are increasing the resources and diligence to make sure everyone stays healthy. Hand sanitizer is available and please wash hands upon entry and exit. We respectfully ask that you do not come in if you are sick. Any decisions on closure will be determined with guidance from the CDC, WHO, USAG along with U.S. officials. To elaborate on our understanding of transmission, COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact with one another. Close contact is defined as being within approximately six feet, for a duration of more than ten minutes or more, with an individual having a known or suspected case of COVID-19, or, having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on). COVID-19 is thought to spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets then land in the mouth or are inhaled, for example. COVID-19 may be spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects, but this not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. People are thought to be most contagious when they are most sick. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that some spread might be possible before people show symptoms; and has received reports of this occurring with this new coronavirus, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. You can find out more here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/transmission.html Our best course of action at the individual level remains being vigilant on monitoring for symptoms. Fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath may appear 2 to 14 days post-exposure. [Please note that public health authorities’ knowledge of COVID-19 is still rapidly evolving. Recent symptoms of COVID-19, including runny nose, headache, sore throat, and a general feeling of being unwell. This is the only source I’m using that has listed these additional symptoms thus far.] If you notice onset of these symptoms, please stay home and do not come in until you are free of fever (100.4° F [37.8° C] or greater using an oral thermometer), signs of a fever, and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines (e.g. cough suppressants). Our instructors will be doing the same. If you or a member of your household have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or you have been in close contact with anyone who has been diagnosed as having COVID-19, and you have been in the studio, please contact us. CDC provides this link on preventing the spread of COVID-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/steps-when-sick.html.
