Mostly Waltz for Boston

Covid Policy

updated December 30, 2021

  • All attendees must be fully vaccinated.
    As of January 2022, we are adjusting our definition of fully vaccinated to require boosters, for those who are eligible. To this end, we will require that you have had your 2nd or 3rd shot within 7 months of the dance that you are attending (or a single J&J shot within 3 months). This means we are asking people to show their vax cards again.
  • Masks must be worn
    You must wear a good quality and well fitting mask at all times in the hall, covering your nose and mouth (excepting a quick swig of water).
  • Contact tracing:
    email address is required. If you test positive in the week following the dance, please let us know. We will notify all attendees via email that someone tested positive. Your identity will be kept anonymous.
  • Ventilation:
    Weather permitting, the windows will be open to draw fresh air in. Please dress for the weather. NOTE: Be aware that the Scout House cupola has been closed for the winter, so unfortunately we will not be able to run the roof-top exhaust fan to ventilate the hall and draw in fresh air as we did for past dances.
  • Testing:
    If possible, please test yourself before coming to the dance! This is a great way to help keep everyone safe, especially if you have attended large gatherings or have traveled within the last week or two. Home rapid tests may be hard to come by, but they are available. Try calling the dozen closest drugstores to see if they have tests in stock or when they expect them in, and then call again.
  • Wristbands:
    to accommodate different comfort levels with mixing, we will use wrist bands to indicate:
    Blue - Ask me to dance!
    Red - I'm only dancing with my partner or just listening.
  • Please do not attend if you are feeling ill
    If you are experiencing any COVID symptoms, or have been exposed (unless you've been cleared with a negative COVID test).
  • Attendance will be capped.
    You can reserve a space in advance by emailing Mostly Waltz Boston. Walk-ins are allowed, space permitting.
