Re-entering our building – what you need to know

We have put together an information pack with everything you need to know for when you are able to return to classes. This contains all the social distancing and safety procedures for when you are in our building.

Please wear a face mask when in our building. 

We will be reviewing and updating this on a weekly basis to check we are following the latest government requirements to ensure a safe return for all our staff, practitioners and customers.

The team at Swindon Dance, is working extremely hard to ensure we have all the latest Government required safety measures in place before we reopen our building. 
 
Our priority is to ensure the safety of our team and all our many users. As soon as we have a confirmed schedule of  activities we will publish these along with guidelines and information on our safety measures for paying and attending within plenty of time as we reopen activities in our studios.
 
We would like to thank everyone who has joined us for some of our online sessions and social media activities – it has been lovely to have been able to have kept in contact with so many of you. We would also like to thank everyone who has supported us with donations during this time – we are so looking forward to welcoming you all back into our building.

Protect yourself

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. COVID-19 is still affecting mostly people in China with outbreaks in other countries.
Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more sever for other. Take care of your health and protect other by doing the following:
 
 

Wash your hands regularly

Washing your hands regularly with soap and water or with an alchol-based rub kills viruses that maybe on your hands.
 

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. If you are too close, you breath in the droplets, including COVID-19 if they have the disease, from the spray released when someone coughs or sneezes.
 

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
 

Practise respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. This is because droplets spread virus. By following this simple respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
 

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing – seek medical care early

Stay at home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority. They will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will protect you and help prevent spread of the viruses and other infections.
 
 

If you have recently visited (PAST 14 DAYS) areas where COVID-19 IS SPREADING

Follow the guidelines above.
 
Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover. Avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more effectively and help protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
 
If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority. They will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will protect you and help prevent spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
