Covid Safety Guidelines, we will used the NHS Covid Pass or equivalent

After long thought, we decided to stay on the safe side. We are aware that some of you might not agree, however I hope you understand as an organiser I rather be cautious and offer a safer place for all the participants.

To enter, all participants will need to be at least one of the following options

Fully vaccinated (2 dosis)
Natural immunity after having Covid19
A recent negative PCR test (done within 48 hrs before event)
A recent negative rapid lateral flow test (done within 48 hrs before event)

Important, under non circumstances we will keep records of the proof you show us. You simple need to show it at arrival when you access the venue.

As proof, when you come to the event, you will show us either an

- NHS Covid Pass on your phone or a printed Pdf.
- Vaccination Card (given to you when you had the vaccine)
- A rapid lateral flow test showing negative result (please do this within 48hrs)

NHS Covid Pass
This is a way to get proof of any the above criteria without disclosing which one, and it is valid for 48hrs

• This can be obtained online at https://covid-status.service.nhsx.nhs.uk/
At the end it give you the option download the pdf or send to your mobile device.

• If you have installed the NHS app (not the NHS covid app) on your phone and registered using you NHS number, then your immunity status will be shown on there. If you then register any covid test results via the NHS system, they too will be logged on the app.

• If you don't have both vaccines and you would use a lateral flow test, you would need to do it with 48hr before the event, add the result online. then you would get a "Covid Pass" to show us at the event

Further Guidelines

Our thoughts
It has been a year since our last milonga (crazy) and now, embracing the current times, we will offer an online edition.

We all know that the milonga is place where we dance and socialise, meet and make friends… while meeting in a venue is not possible, still we could enjoy some of the other aspect, chat socialise listen to music and maybe some of us dance a bit, all from your home.

The Dj will play music, (suggestion are welcome) in tandas of 3 and cortinas, like in the milonga, and zoom offers the option to chat, see each other, while listen to good quality sound music.

You just need a computer or a tablet or phone and access to internet.

The event is Free and if you wish and able, donations are welcome via
