Policies & Procedures

HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Ballet Austin’s current health and safety protocols reflect recommendations from the CDC, federal, state, local health officials and the guidance of Ballet Austin’s medical advisor. With the health and safety of our students and staff as our highest priority, Ballet Austin’s protocols are cautious and evolving. As new recommendations are announced, we will send updates to our protocols, as warranted.

The following protocols are in place:

  • Parents are asked to be on alert for any symptoms of COVID-19 and keep their students at home if showing any cold-like symptoms like coughing, sneezing, or a temperature of 100.4 or higher.
  • Ballet Austin staff, faculty, and accompanists are fully vaccinated.
  • Ballet Austin staff, faculty, and accompanists are required to wear masks while onsite at Ballet Austin.
  • If a student tests positive for COVID-19, unvaccinated students determined to have been in close contact will be required to quarantine for 7 days and receive a negative PCR test, administered after the 5th day, before returning to class.
    • Unvaccinated students may also choose to quarantine for 14 days and return to class without taking a COVID-19 test.
  • Fully vaccinated students will not be required to quarantine and may continue with class. The only exception to this will be if a fully vaccinated student tests positive, in which case that student will need to quarantine.
