COVID-19 Safety Measures and Information
(Updated 8/24/20)

We have a full commitment to your health and safety at the Cleveland Dancesport Challenge, and will keep updating this page with our latest safety measures, and other important resources of information, so as to best reassure you for your visit.

    1. Masks- When to wear them?
    * Dancers while competing on the floor will not be required to wear masks, but can do so if they would feel more comfortable.
    * Masks are encouraged within the ballroom when not dancing.
    * Masks are required outside the ballroom, in all public areas (Ohio mask mandate)
    * Officials and competition staff will be wearing masks throughout the duration of the event

    2. Social Distancing
    * Tables will be spaced for proper distancing, with assigned seating at each table. When submitting registration materials, please indicate the size of your group and if you want to sit with specific people, so we can arrange your seating together.
    * Limited spectator tickets will be available for all sessions, but must be pre-reserved. Seating will be available on the main floor and in the balcony. We recommend reserving tickets in groups.
    * There will not be a designated on-deck area. Dancers will enter the floor from their assigned table.
    * Our dance floor is much larger than regulation size. But, we will also limit the number of couples to better ensure larger spacing.
    * Freestyle placements will be announced, but cards not handed out. Multidance awards will be presented, with social distancing constraints.

    3. Cleaning / Hygiene Measures
    * The ballroom will be thoroughly cleaned by the hotel staff, using Marriott's electrostatic sprayer technology
    * Hand sanitizer will be available, and the number of shared items minimized.
    * Meals (plated or buffet) will be served by hotel staff.

    4. Monitoring
    * Temperatures of attendees will be taken at the entrance to the ballroom.
