Can we social dance YET?!
I am not an epidemiologist or the boss of covid. BUT. I have been keeping an eye out.
The rules have changed (as of Monday 7th Dec), and yes, we can dance! But still:
It totally sucks, but not as much as dying of covid or killing your nanna with the rona! Be strong, my friends – it won’t be long now, as long as we DON’T have an outbreak!
The rules are:
DANCE FLOORS (nightclubs, venues, etc)
1 person per 4 square metres
maximum of 50 people on indoor dance floors, or 500 people outdoors.
1 person per 2 square metres IF there are more than 25 people in the venue (no density rules for <25 people) kiddies count as people! But can we touch one other person who is our ONLY dance partner and also in our bubble, with NO partner swapping? The NSW gov rules say NO TOUCHY for public events, but it's not entirely clear.

Note RE this photo: it’s 4m SQUARE metres per ibis, not 4m between each bin chicken.
So if 3 ibis want to dance, the dance floor/bin must be 12 square metres!
