VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS
- It is a legal requirement that all patrons 16 years and older are double vaccinated against covid-19.
- This includes Staff, dance teachers, students and parents/carers…anyone entering the venue.
- Students under the age of 16, are not required to be vaccinated to participate at this stage.
- We are required to check Covid-19 vaccine certificates via QR code check-in when you enter the studio.
- If you are a student over the age of 16 and are not fully vaccinated, you will not be able to participate in a dance class for now.
- If your child is a student under the age of 16 and they are not fully vaccinated, they can still participate in class for now.
- If you are a parent/carer/sibling etc. and you are not fully vaccinated, you can drop your child at the door of the studio but you are not permitted inside the venue, for now. This includes all age groups, including Petites and Minis.
- If you/your child have a formal medical exemption from receiving the vaccine, please contact us, in writing, before enrolling in a dance class. All information provided to MSF is kept in the strictest of confidence.
Please understand, these are not rules decided by Main St Funk, they are requirements that we are legally obliged to have in place as a business. We, as humans, understand the abnormality of this situation and the difficult decisions some families have had to make because of personal or medical reasons. As humans, we don’t judge you but as a business, we simply cannot afford the fines or the fall out from not meeting our professional obligations. If you cannot join us this year, we hope to welcome you back to the studio one day in the future. Once an MSF Kid, always an MSF Kid.
