We are so excited to be back dancing in-studio with all our Elite dancers this season! As the pandemic protocols on a state and local level continue to evolve, we have established our current Elite COVID-19 protocols based on the information provided to us from our local Board of Health and government officials as of today to keep everyone in our Elite family safe and dancing.

Please know that these protocols will likely evolve and be amended throughout the year. Updates will be emailed, posted on social media (Instagram & Facebook) as well as updated on our website under COVID Policies. Know that our priority will always be the safety and health of our dancers and their families as we amend and review these policies throughout the year. Please feel free to reach out to our office if you have any questions after reading through these policies. All policies are mandatory for families, dancers, and staff to follow to attend Elite this season.

WHAT DO I DO WHEN…?

Exposure/Symptom Issue

When can I return to dance?

Do I have to get tested?

Dancer is exposed to a known positive person

Dancer must receive a negative PCR test day 5 or later post exposure date. If you elect to not get tested, dancer can quarantine for 10 days before returning as long as they show no symptoms.

Yes, the dancer must get a PCR test on or after the 5th day from the date of exposure.

Dancer is exposed to a potential or presumed positive person

Wait for the potential exposure person to notify you of their test results (best to isolate while you wait for their results). If negative, you can return to dance immediately. If they are positive see the protocol above.

If your exposure person turns out to be negative, then no, you do not need a test. If they are in fact positive see the protocols for known positive exposure above.

Dancer is experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms, even mild, including but not limited to fever, cough, runny nose or congestion, fatigue, new loss of taste or smell, stomach upset, body aches

The fastest way to get back to dance is to have a negative PCR test result. However, if you are unable to get your dancer tested or if you do not wish to have your dancer tested, they must complete a mandatory extended 14-day quarantine from the day their symptoms began before they can return to dance.

YES/NO, if experiencing COVID-19 like symptoms you must have a negative PCR test result before returning to dance OR complete a mandatory extended 14-day quarantine from the date your symptoms began.

Member of dancer’s household exposed to known positive or presumed positive person

Member of the household should quarantine and get tested 5+ days after exposure. If the household member is negative the dancer does not need to quarantine or get tested to return.

If family member is negative, no. If family member is positive see “dancer exposed to known positive person” protocol above and amend that your dancers last date of “exposure” is the 10th day after family member’s positive test result.

Dancer travelled out of the state of Massachusetts

Must follow all MA State Travel Advisory Guidelines for isolation & testing found at www.mass.gov

It is highly recommended that dancers who travel out of the state still follow the testing advisory before returning to dance.

Dancer tested positive for COVID-19

Dancer must quarantine for a minimum of 10 days after the positive test result.

No, once dancer has completed the mandatory 10 day quarantine period they are able to return to dance without an additional COVID-19 test
