  • FAQS:
  • If a classmate of one of my children tests positive for COVID-19 do my other children need to quarantine? No. Only the child who had close contact (within six feet for more than fifteen minutes) with his/her classmate is required to quarantine for 7 days.

 

  • If one of my children tests positive for COVID-19 do my other children need to quarantine? Yes, assuming they have had close contact (within six feet for more than fifteen minutes) with his/her sibling.

 

  • If one of my children has close contact (within six feet for more than fifteen minutes) with someone who has symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 who does not attend Perimeter Ballet do my other children need to quarantine? No. Only the child who had close contact (within six feet for more than fifteen minutes) with this person is required to quarantine for 7 days.

 

  • If I have close contact (within six feet for more than fifteen minutes) with someone who has symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 who does not attend Perimeter Ballet do my children need to quarantine? No, as long as they did not have close contact and are not experiencing symptoms.

 

  • I am just not sure if my child is sick or not. What should I do? We encourage you to use your discretion. Please put your child’s best interest as well as that of others in the forefront.

 

  • What does this mean for a child who awoke feeling a little off but decides he/she wants to come to ballet later during the day? If any dancer has felt poorly during the day due to any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea), he/she cannot come to class.

 

  • My child has a chronic condition that could include symptoms similar to those of COVID-19. Does this mean that he/she still needs to quarantine or get a physician’s release each time he/she experiences these symptoms? Parents will have to use their own discretion regarding these situations. If you decide to keep your child at home, your child’s return to ballet will require a doctor’s note. If the child’s condition is chronic, the doctor can choose to note this in his release.

 

  • My child left early/missed ballet for just one day because of feeling poorly that involves a symptom that could be COVID-19. He/she is feeling fine now. Can he/she come back to ballet the next day? A student may come back after leaving early or missing ballet in any of these three ways:
      • Isolate for 10 days, returning when individual completes isolation, is free of fever for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication, and is symptom free.
      • Allow 24 hours since recovery of symptoms and receive a physician’s release to return to activities.
      • Receive a negative result from a COVID-19 test.

 

  • This seems burdensome and expensive. Also, during this time, I want our family to stay out of doctor’s offices as much as possible. We realize and sympathize. Yet as we try to keep our classes open and running well, the requirement of a doctor’s excuse for a student to return to ballet ensures the health of your student and the wellbeing of the entire class.

 

  • What if we choose not to go to the doctor? That is fine. The class can still function, and the student can isolate at home for 10 days and return to ballet once symptom-free and fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication.

 

  • Where do I send my student’s doctor’s note for being absent? Please send a picture or digital version of the doctor’s note for your student’s absence to ballet@perimeter.org.
