Covid Updates

Covid Updates:

Christchurch is currently now in  Alert Level-1

 ☆ Classes  & Events in Level-1

Salsa Latina classes & events are running completely as normal in Level-1 with Partner Dancing Pre-Covid.

As per the MOH guidelines and guidelines for Contact sport at Level-1 'Sport NZ' ...See more info here >

Sport, active recreation and play under Alert Level 1 looks like much like it did pre-COVID-19, with border restrictions. There are no restrictions on businesses and services (including hospitality), no restrictions on gathering, no requirements for physical distancing, and no requirements to keep records to enable contact tracing. While none of the public health requirements are mandatory – it is important to remain vigilant and continue to practice good hygiene to minimise the risk of community transmission. In Alert Level 1 we should be vigilant in maintaining these good practices so that we are prepared to quickly move into higher alert levels if we need to.

Checking-in & Contract Tracing 

When you arrive at Salsa Latina you wont need to fill in a hand written check-in. We will be continuing to display the QR code tracing poster in reception for your own records.

10 Golden Rules
  1. If you’re sick, stay home. Don’t go to work, school or socialise.

  2. If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, call your doctor or healthline. Get tested.

  3. Wash your hands.

  4. Sneeze or cough into your elbow and regularly clean shared surfaces.

  5. You must self-isolate if you’re told by officials to do so.

  6. Stay healthy, work with your GP if you have underlying health issues.

  7. Keep track of where you’ve been.

  8. Businesses help people track movements by displaying the QR code.

  9. Stay vigilant.

  10. Be kind to others and be kind to yourself.

☆ Classes & Events in Level-2

Salsa Latina classes & events are allowed to be running as normal in Level-2 with Partner Dancing 

As per the MOH guidelines and guidelines for Contact sport at Level-2 'Sport NZ'

Alert Level 2 references from this post here, which includes a link to the offical website >

  • Covid 19 Alert level 2

  • Sport NZ – play, active recreation and sport at level 2

  • Specific enquiry with MOH confirming partner dancing is allowed at Level-2 

There are also a number of dance schools and other dance events still running as normal with partner dancing and swapping partners but with 100 limits in venue spaces or 100 person limits in specific areas.

We have recently shared and posted on our facebook page 19th August detailing how partner dancing can happen in level-2 from Masha 'Dance Hub' who has had also direct contact from MOH. If you have concerns and wish to read and understand this please see the link off this facebook post here >


At Alert Level-2 Contact is Possible 
Contact including partner dancing is possible with this event, if health measures are observed, which will include but is not limited to:

  • contact tracing 

  • hand and surface sanitisation

  • masks are optional

  • if you are sick  stay at home

Checking-in & Contract Tracing 

When you arrive you'll still need to fill in our the hand written check-in for contact tracing, despite the QR code tracing poster which is displayed in reception next to the check-in. This is because under level-2 dancing has more contact and we need to trace everyone for our venue. Once we are in level-1 we will not need the check-in.


Your Responsibilities:

- Make sure you wash hands and use hand sanitiser when you can & please so stay home if you are sick.
- People at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19, for example those with underlying medical conditions and  those considered to be at risk eg. older people, are encouraged to take additional precautions such as below.
- Masks are welcome but not required as we know every person in our dance scene and will be registered in this event for the weekend.
- ​You are also welcome to dance with one partner if you choose not to be part of the partner rotation/swapping in classes.​
