The PittStop 2022 Planning committee takes the threat of COVID-19 very seriously and we are committed to keeping our dancers safe. For this reason, we will be employing several strategies in an effort to mitigate the COVID-19 virus. The strategies will include vaccinations, masking, testing and contact tracing.
All participants at PittStop 2022 are expected to be fully vaccinated and boosted. Fully vaccinated is defined as having completed the primary series of vaccinations (in the USA- two Pfizer, two Moderna, two Novavax, or one Johnson & Johnson dose or equivalent in other countries) and has received recommended booster doses if eligible.
All participants will be asked to wear masks while on the dance floor. If there is a low level of community spread at the time of the event, dancers may choose the style of mask they wear. We recommend N95, KN95, or KF94 masks. If community transmission is high, attendees will be required to wear N95 or similar quality masks.
All participants are strongly encouraged to take a COVID test within 24 hours before arriving at the event.
If an attendee of PittStop 2022 is determined to be COVID positive everyone will be informed using the email address provided at the time of registration. Contact information for at the door and one-dance attendees will also be collected so they may be included.
If case rates are deemed to be high at the time of the event, PittStop 2022 may add additional mitigation measures. These measures could include requiring N95 masks, testing during the event or other mitigation measures. Determining the level of Community Spread at the time of the event will be based on a combination of Region 3 and Allegheny County data.
