Madison West Coast Swing Club is committed to protecting the health, safety, and comfort of its members and the dance community as a whole. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with recommendations of the CDC, we will be implementing some changes in our practices as we restart events this year.
Until further notice, MWCSC events will be vaccinated-only. Entry into events will require proof of vaccination in the form of a vaccination card (either physical or a legible photo) and a photo ID. In order to be considered fully vaccinated for the event, your final vaccination dose must have been received on or before two weeks before the event date. Attendees who falsify their records or intentionally mislead MWCSC of their vaccination status will be asked to leave the event immediately and receive a lifetime ban from MWCSC events and no refund for either the event ticket or paid membership dues.
While we appreciate that some members may have medical conditions which prevent them from getting vaccinated or may be uncomfortable with vaccinations, we will not be able to accommodate those members for in-person events at this time. MWCSC advises against attending if you live with or are in regular close contact with individuals who are unvaccinated.
This restriction will be revisited periodically as public health recommendations are updated.
Other Health Considerations
At this time, masks will be required at any MWCSC dance event due to the increasing COVID cases in Dane County.
Events may have capacity limits set in order to prevent overcrowding. Hand sanitizer will be provided, and we encourage you to use it or wash your hands regularly.
If you feel unwell or experience symptoms related to COVID-19 before any event, please refrain from attending. Contact us and we will refund your admission. If you feel unwell following the event and test positive for COVID-19, please contact us in order to allow for contact tracing.
I acknowledge that a risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any gathering place where people are present, including at social dances. By attending an event put on by the Madison West Coast Swing Club, I voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree to waive all claims for COVID-19 related illnesses and damages against the Madison West Coast Swing Club and its Board Members and volunteers.
