New Haven Ballet will once again be instituting a mask optional “break.” Masks will continue to be required to enter the building and while waiting for classes to start/end. Masks are optional for participating in dance classes once inside the studio. We ask that you continue to maintain 6-feet of distance between dancers. If you exhibit any cold symptoms or are not feeling well please have a COVID test performed and wear a mask.
New Haven Ballet will continue to follow CDC guidelines:
1) For those who test COVID positive with or without symptoms, we require masking through day 10.
Students should isolate at home for a full 5 days and may return to the studio on day 6 if symptoms have improved, though masking is required through day 10.
2) For those who experience a close contact or COVID exposure:
Fully vaccinated students with no symptoms need not quarantine but are asked to mask through day 10.
Unvaccinated students with or without symptoms must quarantine at home for 5 days. Unvaccinated students may return on day 6 if a COVID test (PCR or at home antigen test) administered on day 5 is negative, the student has no symptoms, and wears a mask for 5 additional days.
3) Even if no exposure is known, students who exhibit any symptoms of feeling ill are asked to take and return a negative COVID test result to the NHB office before coming into the studio. At home antigen tests or PCR tests are acceptable.
Thank you for your help in making NHB as safe as possible.
