Our goal is to help facilitate as safe an environment as possible. We ask that you help us to achieve that by abiding by certain guidelines:
– A MASK IS REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES while indoors unless actively eating or drinking. No exceptions.
– Frequently wash/sanitize hands during the evening
– Do not attend South Central Swing at the Duce if you are experiencing COVID symptoms, feel sick, or have been exposed. Help us keep the community healthy; stay home when not feeling well!
– Remember, NO always means NO, but more people than usual may want to limit the number of partners they dance with in an evening. Please be respectful of others’ choices and boundaries.
– We cannot guarantee a completely risk-free environment so please, dance at your own risk taking into consideration your personal health situation.
– Please allow us some patience as our check in and welcoming procedures have changed to include a small prescreen. This is for your safety and those around you.
