Our Covid-19 Policy for Dances
Our Covid protocols are intended to protect the health and safety of our
community. Our dances continue to require that every
attendee have a full Covid vaccination and booster and wear a KN95 or
better mask while in the hall. We set these stricter Covid protocols
due to the close proximity of the dancers to each other and the active
nature of contra dancing. Specifically, attendees of our dances must:
of key Covid-19 symptoms.

Wear either an N95, KN95, or KF94
mask that covers the nose, mouth, and chin. Cloth
or surgical masks alone will not be considered sufficient
The mask must be worn at all times when indoors.
Present proof of full Covid vaccination and booster.
Our Covid protocols at dances are consistent with the protocols of
neighboring contra dance organizations.
