The affect that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the world has shown us a reality that we could have never imagined. A new type of threat that has challenged our everyday lives, and forced us to alter the way that we interact with one another.
While we're so unbelievably excited to get classes running again, we want to remind our community that we must remain vigilant in regards to all the public health orders set out by our provincial government. Although restrictions are being lifted, its so important to acknowledge that the possibility of transmission is still very real.
This is why we have taken proactive steps and measures towards adjusting to our new normal and integrated them into our studio experience.
Upon arrival at the studio, you will find that we have provided easy to follow protocols, guidlines, & reminders located all over the common areas and within the studios. These are strategically placed to help us all comply with public health orders and create an environment that will keep the chance for community transmission low.
Our province is recording lower numbers than other regions, but there is still tremendous risk due to new cases still being found daily. So we cannot let up. In fact, its important that we all take responsibility and help keep this virus out of our community.
We cannot accomplish this alone. We need each person to collectively do their part by building great habits, and most importantly respecting one another's space.
Our primary goal at Muse is to keep you SAFE, while you do what you do best..
We ask that you please read the following rules that we have set to keep our operations structured and safe for everyone entering the premises:
1. At the moment we are still accepting cash but CASHLESS PAYMENTS ARE PREFERRED. Dancers are also encouraged to register and pre-pay for drop-in classes on our website.
2. All common areas and commonly touched surfaces will be disinfected regularly to mitigate chances for infection.
3. Entry Monitoring practices are in place to help prevent the virus entering our facility and community. Persons entering the premises are asked to read and acknowledge the following policies prior to entry:
-Do not enter if you have returned from outside Manitoba in the last 14 days.
-Do not enter if you are under direction to self-monitor or self isolate.
-Do not enter if you are experiencing any of the following cold/flu symptoms - Cough, Fever, Runny Nose, Sore Throat, Weakness, or Headache.
4. Social Distancing markers along with various protocol & etiquette signage have been placed all over the facility to help enforce physical distancing in accordance to the provincial health authority standards.
5. We have set a 30 person max capacity for each class. Each of our studios can safely accommodate 30 dancers while maintaining social distancing policies. Each dancer will be assigned a spot in class that will be designated by a social distancing floor marker.
6. Access to change rooms will not be permitted. We ask that participants arrive prepared to dance and exit the facility immediately after the conclusion of class.
7. Both viewing areas will have limited access. For the time being, we ask that parents do not wait for their children in our lobby. Instead we recommend that you drop your child off and pick them up at the end of class. Alternatively, waiting in your vehicle during class is also encouraged. This helps tremendously with keeping our front end as open and clear for traffic as much as possible.
8. All participants will enter through our main entrance prior to the start of class, and must exit the facility through our back door to help avoid unnecessary interaction with dancers coming in for the following class.
9. A 15 Minute break will be implemented between class times to allow for the disinfecting of the studios.
10. Hand sanitization stations are located all over the facility for your convenience. We also have an ample supply of hand soap to support the federal and provincial heath authority’s hand washing recommendations. We ask all patrons to use these to help prevent the spread of the virus in our facility and community.
**INDIVIDUALS THAT FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THESE GUIDELINES WILL BE GIVEN VERBAL WARNINGS, AND IF SERIOUS ENOUGH, COULD BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE PREMISES**
