COVID-19

 

COVID-19 POLICY
AMJAZZ is committed to doing everything we can to ensure that the studio, a second home for most of our AMJAZZ dancers and families, remains safe. It is important to us that our dancers have a safe haven in challenging times and we would like the studio to remain that way.  With this is mind we have set out below our Covid-19 Policy (subject to Change at any time in Accordance with Government Policy).

VACCINE REQUIREMENTS
For AMJAZZ to continue operating and offering our classes throughout all levels of the Covid-19 Protection Framework (or the traffic light system) we are required to follow the vaccine pass requirements (set out by the New Zealand Government).  This will mean that AMJAZZ dancers over the age of 12yrs + 3mths will be required to be fully vaccinated and to present their My Vaccine Pass to the AMJAZZ office.  Your privacy is important to us and any emails sent with this information attached will be deleted on your behalf. No information regarding your health or vaccination status will be given to any third party.

PICK UP AND DROP OFFS
We are requesting that as much as possible only dancers enter the studio (with the exception of New Dancers/Mini Movers/Pre Intro classes were necessary).  We request that dancers be dropped off and collected from the external studio doors.  If Parents/Caregivers do need to come into the studio we request that you are vaccinated, wear a mask and register with the QR Code and/or sign-in register.  My Vaccine Pass must be presented if requested.

MASKS
Masks are to be worn by all dancers and families (over 12 years old) when entering the AMJAZZ Building.  Dancers can remove masks once they enter the dance studio and are ready to dance.

CLEANING
Our dance studios and props will be cleaned regularly to ensure cleanliness of our studios.

SOCIAL DISTANCING
Social Distancing is encouraged in all areas of AMJAZZ Buildings at all times.  AMJAZZ will continue to encourage social distancing within the dance studio and will ensure actions such as smaller groups performing so that distance between dancers is acceptable.

AMJAZZ TEACHERS
It is a requirement of AMJAZZ Ltd that all our teachers and staff are fully vaccinated and follow our Covid-19 Policy.  If a staff member is sick they will not come to the studio.  If they are awaiting a covid test result, they will step down from classes until they return a negative test and their symptoms are gone.  If a staff member tests positive for Covid-19, we will follow MOH guidelines and we will advise any close contacts (i.e. dancers/ families in attendance) to do the same. Where dance class relief is unable to be found, a make-up class will be offered.

ATTENDANCE RECORD
AMJAZZ will continue to keep a record of dancers attending each class
