If you do not provide this evidence, you will not be admitted.

We encourage people to pre-register, as those who provide this information in advance need only to sign in to be admitted. (Registration is only required one time.)

We will maintain evidence of your vaccination/booster status, but not your vaccination card.

Masking for In-Person Greenbelt International Folk Dance events is Mandatory, regardless of of Maryland, Prince Georges County, or City of Greenbelt guidance/regulations.

N95 or KN95 or KF94 masks are required. Cloth masks currently are Not acceptable.

Leaders only may unmask while providing instruction/teaching a dance in order to be more clearly heard by both in-person and Zoom participants.

If you are having COVID symptoms or if you have been recently exposed to someone who has tested positive, please get tested.

bullet

If you test positive, do not attend an in-person event for at least the next 10 days or until 3 days after a negative test.

bullet

All attendees must contact Linda [lindamansdorf@gmail.com] or John [j_srobinson@verizon.net] ASAP if you test positive for COVID within 5 days of attending an in-person dance so we can notify other dancers who attended that event.

bullet

Hand sanitizer and some extra masks will be available at the check-in desk in the dance studio.

bullet

Holding hands with other dancers will be a personal choice. Please check with the dancer next to you before grabbing their hand.

We will have someone sitting at the door as you enter the dance studio and sign in to take any contact or vaccination information that you do not provide in advance.

We realize that making these changes will bring challenges both technical and procedural but as the dance community has demonstrated these past two and one-half years, we dancers are resourceful and adaptable.
