The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to be mainly from person-to-person contact including and not limited to respiratory droplets produced when people talk, cough and/or sneeze, as well as touching objects or surfaces that is contaminated and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes, and close personal contact. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recognized that the more people an individual interacts with at a gathering or event, and the longer the interaction lasts, the higher the potential risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 and COVID-19 spreading. In turn, the CDC has established considerations for events to decrease the risk of exposure including personal prevention practices of handwashing for at least 20 seconds, maintaining 6 feet of distance and wearing a cloth face covering, as well as environmental prevention practices such as cleaning and disinfecting.
Elite Dance Challenge, LLC has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Elite Dance Challenge, LLC cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19 or later transmit COVID-19 to others with whom you may later come into contact with attending, and/or following the event.
