THE STRICTLY pro dancers showed off their isolation hotel with its huge dance tent as they formed a bubble to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Janette Manrara then revealed they had to quarantine for 14 days and be tested twice for coronavirus before arriving at the hotel, where they filmed many of the group dances for the series.

Amy Dowden added: “Due to Covid-19 and the guidelines in place, we have had to create a bubble.”

The dancers reunited at the historic, The Manor Hotel, near the Elstree Studios in order to pre-record the spectacular routines.

She continued: “We usually spend the whole month learning all the group numbers and perform them throughout the series. However, this year, we have pre-recorded all of the group numbers to make it safer for us all.”

Coronavirus measures also mean that while couples will be in close quarters with each other during rehearsals and performances, they will socially distance from other contestants.

Either the professional dancer or the celebrity will also be living on their own for the duration of the series as they form an exclusive support bubble.

This has meant Strictly’s Janette Manrara is living apart from husband Aljaz Skorjanec.

Strictly will run for just nine weeks this year, with no Halloween special or Blackpool trip.

Everyone on set must wear a mask, take frequent temperature checks and sanitise.

There will be multiple deep cleans each day, and anyone on set must sign a form to state they have no Covid symptoms.

CDC Says 13-Year-Old Girl Spread COVID-19 to 11 Relatives During Summer Vacation

In the last few months, children have vacillated between unlikely vectors and walking biological weapons depending on who you asked and on what day. The CDC is underlining the fact that yes, children can spread coronavirus by sharing a new report on a 13-year-old girl who passed COVID-19 on to 11 of her relatives across four states.

The transmission in question came after the unidentified girl traveled with her family to a summer family gathering in a large house. The child had been tested after being exposed, with her test falsely coming back negative ahead of the trip. After the teen took the test, she started to experience nasal congestion, which was the only symptom she had.

The family, which included people that were aged 9 to 72 years old, came together from disparate parts of the country with 14 people staying in the house that contained the teen. The family reportedly did not practice social distancing or wear masks. “Fourteen relatives, including the index patient, stayed in a five-bedroom, two-bathroom house for 8–25 days,” the CDC’s report stated. “These relatives did not wear face masks or practice physical distancing.” 11 people contracted the virus and two needed to be hospitalized, though all have recovered.

Another branch of the family visited the home, but wore masks and remained outside the house. None of those people contracted the virus. As numbers in the US continue to rise, flu season adds a complicated wrinkle and the vaccine still appears far off, it’s important to remember that there are practices, such as wearing a mask, that can reduce the risk of spreading or contracting coronavirus.
