New Covid-19 policy from January 2022

18 January 2022. All events and classes are back on with our new Covid-19 policy

We’re very happy to say that at the start of this year, all of our classes and events will be running. As of the beginning of January 2022, we are installing a new Covid-19 policy for our classes and events, until further notice.

Given the current Covid situation, and in line with current government guidance for dancehalls, we kindly request that anyone attending our classes or milongas EITHER

  • be vaccinated with 2 doses of an approved vaccine (or one of the single-dose Janssen vaccine) OR
  • have taken a PCR or rapid lateral flow test within the last 48 hours, OR
  • be exempt from vaccination or vaccination and testing on the basis of a medical exemption or clinical trial participation.

You should take tests as late as possible before attending the event, ideally within 12 hours. This will strengthen the protection testing provides. We would also kindly request that, even if you are vaccinated and/or your test show a negative result, you do not come if you feel any Covid-19 symptoms.The easiest way to show this is with an NHS Covid Pass. Alternative proofs of a negative test result, such as an NHS Test and Trace email or text proof, are acceptable too. We will be requesting some evidence at classes and milongas until further notice.

More about the NHS Covid Pass, including details of how to access one, can be found on the UK Government website here.

There will be hand sanitiser and masks readily available at classes and milongas, as before. We would encourage people to do what they feel comfortable with; some people may want to swap partners, some not, and likewise with mask wearing.

We hope you can bear with us at the moment – there is no easy answer or solution to the current situation, and we’re trying to keep people as safe as possible whilst also staying open and providing our classes and events as we can. We can only hope that there will be more certainty soon!
