Covid-19 Policy

Unfortunately, it appears Covid-19 is here to stay, and while the shielding rules have been relaxed, we must impose a few rules for our classes (and these rules are aligned with most other classes in Bristol and the South West).

As Salsa and most Latin dances involve close physical contact, entry to classes is contingent on the following to help protect the health of both students and teachers the best we can:

  • Either: You have been “double jabbed” (had both vaccine injections)
  • Or: You have taken a lateral flow test within the previous 24 hours (please do not bring the result test with you, but register it with the NHS)
  • You must have proof – just “saying” you have either of these is not good enough.

We do not wish to offend, and we know this will cause upset if we have to turn you away.

You can either show your vaccination record card with details of your jabs or register your lateral flow test result and show us the result via the NHS app (you should also be able to show your vaccination record via the NHS app), or the confirmation text message – please do not bring the test strip with you as this will not be accepted as proof.

Please do not attend if:

  • You have been instructed to quarantine or self-isolate by track & trace or a medical professional.
  • You have symptoms; A new cough, loss of smell or taste or have a temperature.
  • You have knowingly been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive within the last 10 days.
  • Generally, feel unwell.

Please notify us if you test positive within 48 hours of attending classes.

Masks: The wearing of masks is optional, and we ask that no one judges anyone else for their choice to wear a mask or not.

Hand sanitiser: You will be holding hands during class, so please use sanitiser when you first arrive and between lessons. Please also wash your hands frequently.

Logging in: We do have a separate registration for beginners on the first week, but please log in on each visit – either via the QR code or the logbook. This is so we can inform you of any confirmed cases at the classes.

Swapping partners: This is now optional, anyone who wishes to remain with the one partner throughout the evening, can.

Please respect peoples’ personal space and their choice on whether to mix with others – i.e., ask before hugging someone.

We hope you understand the need for these precautions. They are there, so we can get back to, and enjoy dancing, and hope they won’t blunt your enjoyment.
