Update – Masking in the Ballroom

As you may know, Montgomery County recently relaxed its policy on mandatory masking. Since it’s difficult to manage a “socially distanced” waltz, Waltz Time has decided to continue the mask requirement for the safety of all our patrons. This applies to the March 6 and March 20 waltzes. Thereafter, we’ll re-evaluate the mask policy, basing our decisions on Covid case numbers, health directives, and any MoCo mandates. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

UPDATE TO WALTZ TIME COVID PROTECTION POLICIES

As COVID cases continue to proliferate and variants continue to emerge, we want to protect our dancers as much as possible by providing a safe environment. Therefore, we are updating our requirements in accordance with CDC recommendations: Dancers must provide proof of vaccination including a booster within the past six months. Show your vaccination card (or electronic copy) at the door, or email a copy to waltztimedances@gmail.com at least one day before the dance.

From CDC: Up to date means a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible.

Waltz Cancellation, 1/16

Due to the weather forecast and the continuing Omicron threat, we have decided to cancel the dance on Sunday, 1/16. We sincerely regret the cancellation, but safety considerations are foremost. We look forward to seeing you on February 6.

The Waltz Time Committee

Request from Waltz Time

A friendly request: If you recently assembled with people whose Covid/vaccination status is unknown and/or were unmasked during your time with them, please be considerate toward your waltz friends and refrain from dancing this Sunday, disappointing as that may be. The increasing number of Omicron cases demands that we all be extra-vigilant about safety. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
