COVID-19 REOPENING SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Welcome to Arthur Murray Dance Studios of Arnold and Crofton! We are very excited to be able to open our doors again. We appreciate all of our amazing clients for your patience during these challenging times. Our clients have learned to expect the highest quality of customer service and this time is no exception.

The risks of COVID-19 are still not well understood and there is controversy among the experts on how the virus can spread and difficulty in scientifically determining whether anyone has the virus at any moment in time. We are committed to handle these uncertain times in the safest way possible by treating everyone including our staff as if they could possibly be infected. Therefore, we will be mandating some additional safety precautions as recommended by the CDC and Maryland Health Department to ensure that we are all working together to help reduce the spread of this infectious disease.

In the Arnold location we ask that you enter through the main entrance and exit the side door. In the Crofton location we ask that you wait in the lobby building entrance and we will come and get you prior to your lesson. Please wait outside the premises until it is your scheduled time.

Private lessons will be provided on an appointment basis only. There will less than 10 people in the studio at all times.

Lessons will be provided on the hour. The extra 20 minutes in between lessons will be to clean and disinfect the area in which services were performed in accordance to CDC and MDH guidelines as well as provide smooth transition times.

Face coverings will be worn during the entirety of your appointment by both client and staff. We encourage you to bring your own so that you feel comfortable with the durability and effectiveness.

Temperatures will be checked daily upon entry of our studio by contactless infrared forehead thermometers for both staff and clients. Anyone with a recorded high temperature will be required to reschedule their appointment.

Handwashing will be required with your teacher before your lesson begins. There are also Coway 400 air purifiers that are in the studio that provide medical grade Hepa filtration air flow system.

If you have a fever, coughing, feeling ill, have been around someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19, have been exposed to large groups of people 10 or more, please stay home and contact us prior to any scheduled appointment. We will ask all participants to sign a waiver of understanding and release of liability as part of our studio protocol. We cannot guarantee that any of these measures will completely protect you from contracting COVID-19. You will voluntarily and knowingly assume the risk of exposure should you choose to attend your scheduled appointment.

We understand that everyone has a different comfort level at this time. We ask everyone to respect each other’s feelings and help us make this a safe place for all in our studio environment.

We look forward to the opportunity to continue to bring great dancing and teaching to you!

Autumn & your Arthur Murray Staff
