Covid-19 Plans & Procedures

Talent Forum Covid Protocol

To determine our Covid protocol I continue to monitor the information provided by the Lake County Health Department, the CDC, the IDPH, American Academy of Pediatrics, and various health professionals.

At this time, we will be following these safety steps:

  1. Wearing a mask is required by all dancers vaccinated, and unvaccinated. Should your dancer be unable medically to tolerate mask wearing, please contact Miss Shelley to discuss the situation.
  2. Use provided hand sanitizer when entering and exiting the main entrance.
  3. Vaccinated teachers have the option of removing their mask at times, while maintaining social distancing if needed. This is being allowed by the guidelines set from the American Academy of Pediatrics. (We have also received requests from parents that vaccinated teachers be unmasked)
  4. Company rehearsals may have varied protocols based on extended rehearsals and approval by teachers and parents in that specific company. (Footprints, Forum or Squad)

If a Covid case is reported from your dancer’s class, you and your dancer will be alerted via phone call or email. If your dancer develops symptoms of Covid, such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea we ask you not attend classes until it is safe to do so. We are relying on you to monitor this and be responsible to all in attendance.

Ultimately, the desire is to keep everyone thriving and safe, while providing the best possible learning environment for all. We will continue to evaluate the situation on a weekly basis.
