Sababa Nights is following the protocol as outlined by the California Department of Public Health
If you are experiencing any symptoms (mild or severe) such as: fever, congestion, runny nose, sneezing, shortness of breath or any other flu-like symptoms in the 24 hours preceding a dance night please refrain from joining us in person until you have been symptom free for at least 24 hours.
This also goes without saying - but if you have been exposed to COVID-19 or suspect you have been exposed please get tested and have negative test results before attending a session.
As of 6/15/2021, the guidelines for mask wearing have changed in Los Angeles.
If you are fully vaccinated you are no longer required to wear a mask indoors.
Unvaccinated persons and people who are not yet fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask in indoor settings unless they have been told otherwise by their medical professional and/or fall into the categories listed on the CDPH website. (listed below)
At Sababa Nights it is up to the people to "self-attest that they are in compliance prior to entry"
Dance Halls are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between classes.
Air Purifiers will be running the entirety of our sessions.
Hand sanitizers will be readily available as well as proper hand washing stations throughout the dance studio.
SoHo Dance has their own protocols for COVID protection set in place as well - you can check out more about that on their website.
As of 6/24/21, we will be implementing temporal temperature checks at the door to further protect our dancers.
We understand how important it is to be protected from this virus and encourage everyone to do their part!
That being said, Sababa Nights will not be mandating the vaccine in order to attend sessions.
Including but not limited to the following reasons:
Some members of our community cannot receive the vaccine due to medical reasons and we will not discriminate.
It's a violation of the Nuremberg Code which was put in place after the Holocaust.
Your medical history (including vaccination records) is private information to be shared between you and your medical professional.
The vaccine is not mandated by the government at this time and it is yet to be approved by the FDA.
Exemptions to masks requirements as outlined by the CDPH
The following individuals are exempt from wearing masks at all times:
Persons younger than two years old. Very young children must not wear a mask because of the risk of suffocation.
Persons with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a mask. This includes persons with a medical condition for whom wearing a mask could obstruct breathing or who are unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a mask without assistance.
Persons who are hearing impaired, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
Persons for whom wearing a mask would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety guidelines."
