Question :
HelloI am a dancing studio teaching Tap, Jazz and singing.  I mostly teach ‘one on one’ ie Me and one student.  I can observe the two metre distancing rule and have a plan to undertake regular cleaning, handwashing and a contact tracing system.  (I was actually doing this before the lockdown)  My studio is in my home, if Plumbers and Electricians can work in your home, then can I?  I also have small groups of 5-6 children at a time and can observe the 1 metre distance rule applicable to schools in alert level 3, can these classes run with the above cleaning procedures and contact tracing?  I have stopped all larger groups of 12-15 kids for now and assume they can not operate in level 3?The PM has not mentioned dancing studios at all.  And I would really appreciate some guidelines.Denise HendersonDUNEDIN

    Hi there – there are so many specific instances to cover off, it can be quite frustrating. Have you considered doing your one on one lessons online?

    I don’t think the issue about home lessons is whether or not you can work from home – I think it’s about whether or not your students would be allowed to enter your home. If domestic cleaners are not allowed to visit their clients’ homes at Level 3 (which has been very clearly stated and is listed on the covid website), then I can’t imagine that your students would be allowed to attend either.

    Well done though on getting everything ready – you’ve clearly thought this through, and will be ready to hit the ground running when we get to Level 2.
