COVID-19 Policies

Health Policies

The German Swing Dance Club e.B. is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of every community member through implementation of best practices based on the advice of health professionals and state recommendations. We will continue to update our guidelines to accommodate current health recommendations for Germany.

The following policies will be in effect for 2022.

The previous years have shown that the pandemic situation and local regulations can change quickly. This also means that we cannot provide a fix set of rules at this point in time.

Therefore, we decided to give you a range of policies from our minimal requirements to the maximal option that might become necessary. This allows us to react to a changing situation and you to decide if you are fine to attend the event within this range.

At this moment, we expect the minimal requirements to be in place during the event. We will update this page to clearly state which level of policies the event will run under.

Vaccine Policy

Bavarian Open is a vaccine-only event. Entry into the event will require evidence of full vaccination with an EU approved vaccine by:

The time of vaccination is not relevant (i.e. access will be granted to everyone who at one point got fully vaccinated, even if it is more than 9 months before the event).

We recommend to get boostered if you are eligible and there are new booster vaccines available before the event.

Mask Policy

Currently active: minimum - masks only recommended

Minimum: We recommend wearing masks to protect yourself and others.

Maximum: Masks are required throughout the venue, this might include on the dancefloor.

Test Policy

Currently active: minimum - test before travel recommended

If you test positive at the event, we will conduct a second quick test. If both tests are positive, you will be asked to leave the event. We suggest you self-isolate. For questions about local travel rules or if you need any help, please contact the event staff.
