It is our priority for you, your colleagues, and participating artists to feel comfortable and safe. The landscape is ever-changing, and additional information regarding COVID-19 protocols in Montréal will be communicated as they evolve.
In compliance with the regulations set in place by our participating studio partners, Springboard will require proof of full vaccination* for all dancers, choreographers and staff at the project.
*To qualify as fully vaccinated, you must have received:
- at least 3 doses of accepted COVID-19 vaccines, or
- at least 2 doses of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Furthermore, masks/face coverings will be mandatory at all times during the project.
IF YOU EXPERIENCE SYMPTOMS
We highly recommend that you bring 5-10 rapid tests with you to Montréal, as we can not guarantee that these will be commercially available in the city during the project. If you are experiencing symptoms you must test at your site of accommodations, and will not be allowed into the studios until you are able to produce a negative test result.
IN THE EVENT OF A POSITIVE TEST
In the event that you test positive for Covid-19 during your stay in Montréal, you must self-isolate for at least 5 days. The period of self-isolation starts with the onset of symptoms or, in the absence of symptoms, the date when the sample was taken.
After 5 days, if your symptoms improve and you have not had a fever for 24 hours (without the assistance of medication), you may return to the studio.

If you are looking for some additional information, we hope these sites may provide more insight on regulations, protocols, and how the province is dealing with the virus:
