Coronavirus Safety Plan
We are looking forward to bringing your dancers back to the stage! Please
review our safety plan. Compliance is extremely important to reduce the
spread of COVID-19. We aim to make this is a safe experience for all
If your or anyone in your household is ill at the time of the feis,
please do not attend. If you or anyone in your household has been diagnosed
with known or suspected COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to the feis, please do
not attend. If you or anyone in your household has had close contact with
someone with known or suspected COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to the feis,
please do not attend. If you or your dancer(s) have been told to quarantine
due to exposure to COVID-19, please do not attend.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health recommends that travelers coming
from certain states quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Pennsylvania. The
list of these states may be found here:
These states are updated periodically. If you are coming from a state on
this list, we ask you not register for these Feiseanna. If your state is
added to our list, please contact the feis directly to remove your
registration. We will also be monitoring our registration lists.
We will follow all current Local regulations regarding the size of
Each stage/pavilion is considered a separate gathering.
In order to help us manage the total number of people present, please
limit your families to one adult per registered child. Please do not bring
siblings, grandparents or other spectators. Whenever possible, families with
multiple dancers should consider attending with only one adult.
Masks must be worn correctly (covering mouth and nose) by all attendees,
dancers and adults, at all times, with the exception of when the dancers are
actually competing. If they are warming up on stage in a group, masks must
be worn. We will be adjusting how we line dancers up on stage to limit the
amount of time they are without masks. We will keep their starting positions
six feet apart. Please prepare your dancers to wear their masks while
waiting their turn. Please send them with a small, easily
identifiable/labeled gift bag or other bag in which they can place their
mask when they are dancing. They must put their mask back on immediately
after they finish dancing. We will have volunteers monitoring compliance
with the masking rule. The State of Pennsylvania requires that masks be worn
in all public places at all times. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RULE WILL
RESULT IN IMMEDIATE DISQUALIFICATION.
Please remember to maintain 6 feet of separation between your family and
others at all times. Please do not congregate under canopies or pavilions.
Please remember to wash or sanitize your hands frequently. Please bring
hand your own hand sanitizer and water. We will not have food or beverages
Feis Cancellation In the event that we need to cancel our feisanna,
refunds will be issued for the competition fees, but the family fee will be
retained by the feis due to the upfront costs of preparation.
