We are at Alert Level 1 and so there are no restrictions on classes.
At Alert Level 1 we all need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community.
Staying at home if you’re sick is especially important at Alert Level 1. The risk of COVID-19 being spread in the community is much greater when there are no restrictions on gatherings or going out.
Keep up good handwashing practices, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and drying thoroughly. Cough and sneeze into your elbow. Keep surfaces clean.
At Alert Level 1, there is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. We encourage you to continue tracking where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help with contact tracing, if required. You can use the NZ COVID Tracer app on public transport, in workplaces and when visiting businesses and shops.
Since 1 Jun we have been recording the details of everyone who attends a Fevah Modern Jive class or event whether they are a regular dancer or just visiting.
From 11.59 pm, Sunday 14 February, outside of Auckland, New Zealand is moving to Alert Level 2 until midnight Wednesday 17 February.
Partner dancing can still go ahead subject to venue availability.
Alert Level 2 allows for opportunities to engage in play and active recreation including contact sports subject to the range of public health measures.
On top of the above we are adding:
Check back here regularly for any updates as the situation can change daily. If Level 2 restrictions become tighter or if we move to Level 3 then classes will be cancelled until restrictions ease.
The country outside of Auckland is now at Alert Level 1 and so there are no restrictions on classes.
Class bookings are currently not required as we're unlikely to have more than 100 people at Level 2. However, we will monitor the number of people who arrive to ensure we do not reach 100.
Visitors from Auckland are not allowed to attend classes as they still need to observe their maximum group size of 10 under Level 2.5.
If you have been to Auckland in the last 2 weeks please do not attend classes.
Level 2 will remain in place until at least Sunday 6 September 2020.
Parties regularly get over 100 people, therefore:
Information on mask wearing in dance on the Ausdance NSW website:
We are being very careful about doing the right thing. We have done much research around the requirements of having a group in a venue and rest assured we are doing all we can to get you back on our dancefloor in a safe responsible way.
Reasons behind this decision:
A few dance schools in NZ closed at the start of same week as Fevah - from what was happening elsewhere we knew it wasn't looking good.
