• Office administrators review daily screening forms to ensure that all persons are submitting completed forms. Administrators will contact any family or staff member who has forgotten to submit a form.
PREVENTING TRANSMISSION
• Masks will be worn by all persons entering the studio with the exception of children 2 yrs of age or younger. All dancers will keep their masks on during classes. Instructors will aim to avoid all cardio exercises.
• Disposable masks are available in the office and in each of the three studios.
• Change rooms are closed and dancers are encouraged to arrive to class already dressed.
• Only parents/guardians of dancers in our Tiny Tots classes (2 - 5 yrs of age)are permitted in the facility. All other parents will drop their dancer off at the studio entrance.
• Parents/Guardians that enter must stay masked the entire time and must stand on socially distanced circles that are laid out on the floor of the lobby. All chairs have been removed.
• Parents/Guardians that enter must log their name and phone number for the purposes of contact tracing.
• All dancers must be registered for a specific class. There are no drop ins, no make up classes and no trial classes.
• Hand sanitizer is available outside of the entrance to the studio, on the table with the log for contact tracing, in the lobby and in all three studios.
• One door is dedicated to entering the facility. Another door is dedicated to exiting the facility. Families come in the building up the main stairwell and leave the building in the stairwell closest to Suite #215. This door is locked from the outside so no one is able to enter through this stairwell.
• Dancers wait on socially distanced circles in the lobby, with their masks on, before they are called into class by the instructor.
• There are three dedicated shoe racks, one for each studio, to hold dancers’ outside shoes.
• Each studio floor is taped off to provide social distancing between dancers in a class.
• The facility contains three bathrooms and three studios. Each bathroom contains signage to show that it is dedicated for dancers and instructors in a specific studio only.
• Studios will be disinfected between groups of students. This includes floors, barres and areas where bags are kept. Instructors are also required to disinfect the bathroom affiliated with the studio that they are working in. This can also be completed by administrative staff.
• The disinfectant that is being used at The Dance Element Inc. is Fresh Start Environments (www.freshstart.pro).
• At the end of the day, a dedicated individual will use the disinfectant in a fogging machine to disinfect all areas in the facility.
• Cleaning logs are posted in each studio, each bathroom, and the lobby.
• Studio cleaning from an outside company occurs on Sunday evenings.
• Air Circulations / Ventilation
• Studio windows will be opened when weather permits.

SUSPECTED EXPOSURE
• Contact Halton Public Health 311 or 905-827-9833 or 1-866-442-5866
• Any dancer who becomes symptomatic during a class is brought to a dedicated isolation room and a parent/guardian is contacted to pick them up immediately.
• If the individual is tested and receives a negative result, they can return to dance after they are symptom-free for 24 hours.
• If the individual does not get tested, they can only return to dance after isolating for 14 days from the onset of symptoms and/or are symptom-free for 24 hours (whichever is longer of the two).
