There is no denying that Covid-19 has changed our lives in varying degrees. In view of the ravages of this dangerous virus, we should have rearranged our lives to this new normal. Such is the case of mass events to which many European countries were accustomed.
Karen Salsa McQuire Director of Yorkshire Salsa Congress, has recently said that her priority is health and safety of all her staff and those attending her future events, so she claims that she will abide by each and every government measure to combat Covid-19. For the same reason, she decided to avoid crowds and to prioritize health above economic benefit.
Here we have part of the statement:
“Coming into lockdown quite a few promoters were ahead of the government for the safety of our dance community, I want to keep this same level of responsibility when it comes to timing of social gatherings, I am not ready for any sort of large social gatherings and will not breach any of the Government’s Coronavirus measures which is currently 6 people in open spaces 2 meter distancing
I am aware that other dance businesses and individuals are organising meet-ups during this time, including this weekend. Fact: Outdoor gatherings of more than 6 people are illegal, a risk to health and could have major implications for the reputation of our industry.
A reminder that breach of coronavirus measures can be reported here
