CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

General Advice taken from NHS & Government Websites 06/03/2020
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Much has been said of the recent outbreak of Coronavirus Covid 19 and without making small of the worldwide spread of this new strain of Coronavirus it is important that we keep a clear head and know the facts. This document has been produced to hopefully bring together information that is freely available to the public on the government and NHS websites and hopefully give our members some peace of mind in amongst some of the hype.

Ultimately, do not attend a dance class or dance night if you are feeling unwell.

This includes showing any symptoms of illness related to Coronavirus or otherwise.


The incubation period of COVID-19 is between 2 and 14 days. This means that if a person remains well 14 days after contact with someone with confirmed Coronavirus, it is unlikely that they have been infected.

What's the risk of coronavirus in the UK?

The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate.

Symptoms of Coronavirus

The symptoms of Coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature/fever
  • shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. There is no evidence that children are more affected than other age groups – very few cases have been reported in children.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

How Coronavirus is spread

Because it's a new illness, we do not know exactly how Coronavirus spreads from person to person.

Similar viruses are spread in cough droplets.

It is very unlikely it can be spread through things like packages or food.

Do I need to avoid public places?

Most people can continue to go to work, school and other public places.

You only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online Coronavirus service or a medical professional.

How to avoid catching or spreading Coronavirus

Do

  • wash your hands with soap and water often - do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands after using public transport
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell


Don't

  • touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
  • attend a dance class if feeling unwell


Check if you need medical help

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Go online or call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

  • • September Update Midweek Classes could be back soon at Ashtead Hall. (updated 14/9/2020)

    05 September 2020
    Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall our home base for Tuesday nights. Weekly at the excellent Ashtead Hall on Tuesdays will recommence: There is some LIGHT OK.... whose wanting to find out more....? DANCE CLASSES? Whose interested in starting dance classes again.... in Surrey?   It would only be Modern Jive LeRoc Dance Classes at this stage (Stage 1) and you can only (at this stage) dance with your same partner, so no social mixing at this stage.   Limited numbers permitted in venue only   Pre-booking only - no turn up and pay slots   Members only (Stage 1) You may book with a member of the same household or from a member of your support bubble.   Fixed dance zones within venue. Secure Covid 19 Venue, complying with all guidelines & regulations.   The recent announcements this week have not affected these venues, providing Covid 19 risk assessments and insurances are in place and in case you wondered, I have been given a "Government" green light today (11/9/2020) to sound you all out.   Stage 1 Environmental Health Legal Dept has confirmed we can hold class nights under the "Educational" section of the legislation, therefore just for dance classes, we can reopen. This allows us to work around the current law with their written confirmation, which still prevents Freestyle only dances and social dancing.   Fixed partners only..   Stage 2 will build on the above.   This is all subject to any further Government updates.   If you wish to sign up as interested, we can let you know with Priority Information regarding the first night back.    If enough of you are interested and its financially viable, lets do it...   Check this website every Tuesday in case of sudden changes to program and venue. It’s supposed to be changing and we can dance soon, when it’s down to Government, so be part of it when it returns. Dancing LeRoc. Freshness and innovation * in a friendly relaxed environment * in small & medium sized class groups * with excellent teachers * no partner necessary * and no previous dance experience required. Excellent spring dance floor. 7.30-10.45pm We have a structured 12 week rolling Beginner classes where you learn the basic moves, tuition is by our teachers, before you move up the further moves at Intermediate level. We also offer freestyle practice sessions. It’s about fun, having a laugh in a friendly social dance setting. All welcome
