COVID-19 POLICIES & PROCEDURES In an effort to keep everyone safe, Inspired Creations Dance Studio's policies regarding COVID-19 will follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and the Livingston County Health Department (LCHD). Based on current recommendations, our policies and prevention strategies are listed below.
Masks are required.
Due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant, the CDC recommends universal indoor masking by all students (age 2 and older), staff, teachers, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
Physical distance should be maintained.
The CDC recommends maintaining a minimum of 3 feet of physical distance to reduce transmission risk. We ask that you be conscious of keeping the recommended distance from others around you while you are in the building.
At this time, due to the size of our lobby, we are asking that parents not hang around in the lobby unless absolutely necessary (with the exception of the parents of our very young dancers). Unless you are coming into the lobby to make a payment, parents should stay outside after walking their child to the door.
In the dance rooms, students will be required to keep a physical distance from one another and not make physical contact with each other at this time.
Improvements in ventilation have been made.
Improving ventilation is an important COVID-19 prevention strategy that can reduce the number of virus particles in the air. We are adding an air purifier in each of the dance rooms and in the lobby to clean the air.
Hand sanitizer will be provided.
Individuals should continue to practice handwashing and respiratory etiquette to keep from getting and spreading infectious illness. Hand sanitizer will be available in the lobby and each of the dance rooms.
We ask that everyone uses hand sanitizer upon entering the building, and students will be given hand sanitizer before leaving the dance room.
The studio will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
Cleaning and disinfecting are important layers of prevention to help keep everyone safe. We will do our best to provide a safe environment for our dancers and families by keeping the studio clean using all EPA approved cleaning products. Our cleaning procedures are as follows:
The staff will disinfect door knobs and hard surfaces that are frequently touched hourly.
Teachers will wipe down barres with disinfectant after each class.
The dance floors will be cleaned and disinfected daily.
The lobby chairs and floors will be cleaned and disinfected daily.
Please stay home when sick, or if you have had contact with someone with COVID-19 or COVID-like symptoms.
If you have a cough, fever or are feeling sick in any way, please stay home.
Students, teachers, and staff should stay home when they have signs of ANY infectious illness and should refer to their healthcare provider for testing and care.
Please do not come to the studio if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has had COVID-like symptoms within the past 14 days.
Zoom classes will be available for any student absent due to quarantine or COVID-19.
If a class has to be missed due to COVID reasons, please notify the studio immediately and we will send you a link to be able to participate in class virtually for the class(es) you are absent for, or we will send you a recording of the class.
If you are not able to participate virtually, please notify us so we can make other arrangements with you.
Thank you for helping us keep our dance studio safe!
