Dancer guidelines:
  • Please check the website or Facebook group before coming to a dance, for the most current dance status (see below for these guidelines).
  • Please stay home if you have any symptoms of any illness.
  • We encourage (but do not require) people to take a rapid test before attending, especially if they may have been exposed.
  • Please inform the event organizer if you have COVID symptoms or test positive for COVID within 2 weeks after the event.

Masking and Cancellation guidelines:
Masking: CFOOTMAD uses the CDC’s COVID Community Levels to inform when we require masks - this replaces our former metric, the Colorado Dial Dashboard.
  • Masks are required when the hosting county, or two or more of the counties we draw heavily from (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Jefferson, and Larimer), are at high (orange) or medium (yellow) on the CDC Community Level.
  • When the host county and at least 5 other counties are at low (green) COVID risk levels, the masking policy is at the discretion of the dance organizers.
  • When masks are not required, dancers are welcome to wear masks at any of our dances--please be courteous, and respect the mask preferences of others.
Given the low COVID levels in our community, all CFOOTMAD dances are currently mask optional. As of June 2023, the Hands Across dance is experimentally dropping its mask requirement for the Summer. The masking requirement for each upcoming dance is also noted in the "Upcoming Dances" section of the Home page (scroll to the bottom). Note: this information will not appear on the Calendar page. The Board is currently reviewing our masking policy, and this page will be updated with any changes.

Cancellation: As long as we are primarily dealing with the current COVID variants, or variants with a similar severity, we will not have a threshold for an automatic dance cancellation. Instead, dance organizers will have discretion to cancel if they feel it is not safe to hold their dance, on their own timeline. In place of a defined metric for cancellation, the Board will meet at least every two months to look at current COVID data and update our policy as needed. If COVID circumstances change significantly, we may make more sudden changes or cancellations.
