Covid-19 Protocols & Procedures

Broadway Dance Center COVID-19 Protocols and Procedures

  • Physical Distancing. To ensure employees comply with physical distancing requirements, we agree to ensure 6 ft. distance between personnel, only allow one individual at a time in tightly confined spaces, post social distancing markers, limit in-person gatherings, and establish designated areas for pick-ups and deliveries to reduce contact.
  • We are confident we can maintain 6 ft of distance; however, the following would be mandatory for all that enter the facility:
    • Health declaration form to be filled out prior to entry
    • Street shoes must be left outside the studio
    • Temperatures taken before moving from the lobby to the studio
    • Face masks are mandatory and must be worn at all times
    • Handwashing with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds will be the mandatory first stop once entering
  • Directional signage will be in place to avoid bilateral traffic.
  • Available restrooms will be clearly designated.
  • Regularly scheduled cleaning and disinfecting will occur each time a class has concluded.
  • Staggered arrival times will be enforced to promote social distancing. 
  • Pick-ups and deliveries will happen in the lobby of the facility; carrier workers will not be allowed beyond the lobby space and will use the designated package drop off spot outside the freight elevator. All front desk staff will be wearing masks along with a plexiglass partition for protection.
  • Protective Equipment. To ensure employees comply with protective equipment requirements, we agree that we will do the following:
    • BDC will provide employees with an acceptable face covering at no-cost to the employee and have an adequate supply of coverings in case of replacement.
    • We will have a stock of approximately 5 three-layer disposable masks for all employees and visitors per week.
    • Masks must be worn at all times. If a personal cloth mask is soiled, it must be placed in a plastic bag to be brought home and washed; we will replace it with one of our disposable masks on site.
    • High touch surfaces will be disinfected frequently: stereo equipment; phones; door handles; tables; light switches; desks; keyboards; toilets; faucets; sinks. All staff will sanitize after each use. Anything that is touched will be immediately sanitized after use.
    • BDC will adhere to hygiene and sanitation requirements from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Health (DOH) and maintain cleaning logs on site that document date, time, and scope of cleaning.
    • There will be a designated handwashing station in the common space and an additional restroom that is designated specifically for handwashing. Anyone entering the facility will need to immediately wash their hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
    • We will have regular cleanings in the studios after each class that includes floors and all touched surfaces; bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized multiple times throughout the day.
  • Communication. To ensure the business and its employees comply with communication requirements, we agree that we will do the following:
    • Post signage throughout the site to remind personnel to adhere to proper hygiene, social distancing rules, appropriate use of PPE, and cleaning and disinfecting protocols.
    • Establish a communication plan for employees, visitors, and customers with a consistent means to provide updated information.
    • Maintain a continuous log of every person, including workers and visitors, who may have close contact with other individuals at the worksite or area; excluding deliveries that are performed with appropriate PPE or through contactless means; excluding customers, who may be encouraged to provide contact information to be logged but are not mandated to do so.
  • Screening. To ensure the business and its employees comply with protective equipment requirements, we agree that we will do the following:
    • Screening will be done via an Online Health Declaration Form before arriving on site.
    • Temperatures will be taken on-site by the Front Desk staff.
  • Contact tracing and disinfection of contaminated areas. To ensure the business and its employees comply with contact tracing and disinfection requirements, we agree to have a plan for cleaning, disinfection, and contact tracing in the event of a positive case.
  • In the case of an employee testing positive for COVID-19, we will do the following:
    • Close off areas used by the person who is sick
    • Open outside doors and windows for increased air circulation
    • Wait 24 hours before clean/disinfect (or as long as possible)
    • Clean & disinfect all areas used by the person
    • We will make every effort to limit contamination by practicing cleaning/disinfecting protocols after each class switch. Restrooms will be designated to help with contact tracing/exposure, along with social distancing, proper PPE equipment being worn, and enforcing diligent hand washing or hand sanitizing.
    • We will inform any close contacts of possible exposure via email but maintain confidentiality. We will require potentially exposed contacts that they should stay home for 14 days, telework if possible, and self-monitor for any symptoms. We will share information on places to get tested for COVID-19.

Broadway Dance Center will be following all safety protocols and guidelines given by the CDC. Specific protocols and guidelines will be emailed to enrolled families.
