FACILITY CLEANLINESS AND SANITATION

HDC is taking proactive measures to maintain clean facilities and reduce germs by implementing frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs, ballet barres and audio/video equipment. Increased cleaning is being implemented as per CDC guidelines. We have added an approved disinfectant solution to the mopping liquids used to clean the floors and have increased the number of times throughout the day/per week the floors are mopped, along with other sanitization measures throughout the facility.

Frequent hand washing and usage of hand sanitizer is recommended to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other diseases.
