This document is designed to provide a framework for managing risks associated with COVID-19 within dance business and community dance facilities in New Zealand. It contains recommendations that are evidence based, and that follow a risk-minimisation model. It also includes recommended protocols in the event that community transmission risk rises and additional controls need to be considered to keep dance facilities open. This is a working document that will continue to evolve to ensure recommendations meet the latest research related to COVID-19 protocols and safe interventions.
Edited for dance sector use by DANZ (Dance Aotearoa New Zealand) based on Framework for Exercise Facilities by Exercise Association of New Zealand.
We also recommend dance related businesses review the information provided on WorkSafe NZ’s website regarding Close Proximity Services During Alert Level 2
