COVID-19 Mitigation Protocols

Vaccination and Booster: Proof of full vaccination and (if eligible) booster shot is required. “Full vaccination” means you have received 2 doses of Pfizer or Moderna, or one dose of the J&J vaccine. We accept either the white CDC-issued card or a NYS Excelsior Pass. You may bring documentation with you to the dance or email a good-quality scan in advance to covidsafety@syracusecountrydancers.org.

Common Sense Self-Wellness Check: Please stay home if you are not feeling well on the day of the dance. We also request that you contact us if you become sick within 10 days of the dance. 

Contact Information: We’ll be collecting an email address and a phone number for each of you. If we learn that an attendee has become ill, we will contact you so you will know that you might have been exposed.

Masks: You must be masked while indoors. Use a mask that fits snugly but comfortably and covers nose and mouth. We plan to have some KN95 masks at the door for $1. Come early if you would like an upgrade. 

No Food: Please do not bring food into the dance hall.

BYO Water: Please do bring your water bottle. The water fountain in the church cannot be used. Bottled water will be available if you forget yours. 

Air Circulation: Windows will be open and a fan will be running. If the weather is cold dress in layers!

We will dance for two hours without our traditional break for food and conversation. 

NOTE: When we collect your vaccination and contact information for a dance, we will save it (unless you specifically request that we do not) so that you will not need to provide it for future dances. We would still ask that you update us at future dances if any information changes. 

These protocols were put in place March 2022. They will be updated as conditions change.

If you have any questions about our COVID protocols, please feel free to contact covidsafety@syracusecountrydancers.org.
