Virtual Workshops & Classes

Dear Dancin' Friends,


I never thought I'd see the day when deciding whether or not to wear a face mask had anything to do with one's political affiliation. As such, I'm glad I don't have any political affiliations. I encourage everyone to become informed and think for themselves, not just go along with a group.

I've been reading the Safe Start Washington plan. It indicates on pages 3 and 4 that: IN ALL FOUR PHASES of reopening we should stay at least six feet away from other people. Does that mean that there would need to be a Phase 5 before most of us could dance? However on page 6 under Phase 4, it only mentions such physical distancing to be observed by high-risk populations (which includes anyone age 65 or over). I've contacted the governor's office both by phone and website for clarification, but thus far have not received an answer.

Most of my readers live in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties, all of which are currently in Phase 1. Even if we can dance in Phase 4, considering that no phase will last less than three weeks, if we were to move on to Phase 2 today (May 26), most of us would still not be able to dance in the ways we normally did until at least July 28 ... but there is no indication that these counties could start Phase 2 anytime soon.

You can read the whole plan at: www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/SafeStartWA_4May20_1pm.pdf?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
