COVID Health and Safety Policy

Last updated July 30, 2022

Boogie by the Bay is committed to providing a safe and friendly dance environment for all our attendees. Please review our Code of Conduct for general guidelines.

Our COVID policy is based on current recommendations from the CDC, the state of California, and San Mateo County.

This year, Boogie by the Bay will be a VACCINATED and TESTING event.

  • All attendees must be vaccinated for COVID-19. We also strongly recommend that you are up-to-date on boosters if you are eligible. Proof of vaccination (CDC card or digital vaccine record) is required when you check in. If you are a California resident, you may access your CA digital vaccine record here.
  • All attendees must provide proof of a negative COVID rapid antigen test taken less than 12 hours before checking in at the event. You must supply your own test. (COVID test kits are available for free or at low-cost in many places.) Take your test off-site, then take a photo of yourself or your ID with the completed test. Bring the photo with you when you check in. We highly recommend that you bring additional test kits to test daily, and to share with your roommates.
  • Face masks (N95, KN95, or equivalent) are required for all Jack & Jill competitions. For now, masks are optional but strongly recommended for other activities such as Strictly Swing competitions, workshops, and social dancing. This is dependent on the level of community spread at the time of the event. We will update our masking policy, as necessary, closer to the event.
  • If you feel unwell, develop COVID symptoms, or test positive, you must stay home or self-isolate. We will refund your weekend pass (minus a $20 administrative fee) or roll over your registration to next year’s event. Please do your part to help make sure our event is as safe as possible.

Note: Our COVID policy is based on the current state of the pandemic in the San Francisco Bay Area. We may update it if conditions change. We will post any updates on our website and Facebook event page.
