We have filed in our health & safety concept as required in those times of COVID-19 to the responsible local authorities and we have finally received as of August 28, 2020 their approval of the concept with (as expected) a number of regulations we need to follow to keep everybody safe.
Our upmost priority is to keep you and everybody safe. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we need to follow a number of regulations and restrictions from the side of the authorities to make this event happening and to keep you safe. Please note that we must insist that everybody is following the rules which we will need to apply.
Those regulations can be changed any time following the development of the pandemic, they can be released (hopefully), but they also might be tightened. We will send an update to all registered attendees a few days before the event per email. And of course the full list of regulations will be put up at the venue for everybody to be reminded at all times.
The pandemic situation has been worsening the past weeks, not only in Berlin, but everywhere. Note that one of the requirements of the authorities to cope with this situation imposed to us is that you will only dance with one partner during the entire weekend. We need your colaboration for this measure and we ask you to follow this rule at all times.
We are sure that you are well aware that in the current situation such an event can only be done with a large number of safety regulations. Do not expect this to be an event as we were used to have before March 2020.
At the registration desk you will need to fill in a form with information regarding your health and your travel history for the last two weeks. Those forms will be kept a max of 4 weeks for the authorities and will be automatically deleted after 4 weeks.
We will check you in and out every time you enter or leave the event by scanning your QR code to keep record of your attendance.
We will ask you to download our unique mobile app, which we designed especially for this event, so you can track who you got in close contact with during the weekend. After every close contact please scan the QR code of your close contacts. This is voluntary but we believe that it is in the interest of everybody as it does support the contact tracing if needed.
We will measure your temperature every time you enter the venue using contactless thermometers. No entrance granted with high temperature/fever. In case of high temperature you need to see a doctor and stay home.
Whenever possible, especially when cueing at the bar, bathrooms or registration, or chatting with each other, please keep your distance to others as much as possible.
Play it safe - Wearing a mask at all times is required in order to keep everybody safe. We welcome you to use a mask as well when inclose contact with your own partner. We do provide you with a mask at the registration desk if needed. The mask must cover mouth AND nose fully at all times. This is for everybody. We all have family/friends/colleagues.
Disinfect your hands after every dance with your partner or close contact or as often as possible. Desinfectant stations are placed in every room. We also will provide you with nurturing hand cream.
Mind recommended sneeze & cough etikette and only sneeze and cough into your elbows.
We will air thoroughly all rooms once an hour or more often if needed adding up to the strong air condition in all rooms. We will install CO2 measuring devices in each room and air thoroughly if the recommended limit is surpassed.
When using the bathrooms wash your hands with soap regularly and for at least 20 seconds.
For the comfort of your dance partner and other close contacts, use the deodorant we provided in the bathrooms for everybody to use.
No alcoholic drinks will be sold or served at the bar during the event.
