With Alberta in Phase 2 of the Relaunch Strategy, we are implementing strict COVID-19 protocols:
- Attendees must conduct a health self-assessment and sign off on an acknowledgement form prior to entering the classroom on Day 1.
- Anyone who is sick with flu-like symptoms such as cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle aches, chills, loss of taste or smell, headache, and/or chest pain MUST NOT attend the course.
- If attendees are unable to attend the course due to symptoms, or if symptoms arise prior to the start of Day 2 and they cannot continue with the course, arrangements will be made to accommodate the student at a later date.
- All attendees will be required to sanitize their cell phones and personal items prior to entering the classroom. Wipes will be provided by the instructors.
<sup>P</sup>highly encourages the use of facial coverings while attending the course. We will have facial coverings available should attendees not have their own.
- A complete cleaning of the classroom will be conducted the day prior to a training session and the evening before Day 2. Frequently touched surfaces and items will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
- We will ensure that attendees have enough space to adhere to the requirements for physical distancing (at least 2 meters apart) and adhere to public health guidance regarding the maximum number of people in a gathering.
- With regards to the practical demonstration part of the course:
- Practice exercises in separate modules will be set up so attendees can rotate through them one by one.
- Videos to illustrate activities such as constructing a containment as well as constructing and using a decontamination facility will be used in lieu of our usual laboratory demonstration.
- For respirator fit testing, qualitative fit testing methods will be used. We encourage attendees to bring their own respirator if they own one; this must be sanitized prior to entering the classroom. For those who don’t have a respirator, we will provide attendees with their own practice units to limit contact.
- All course materials provided at the start of the session must be retained by attendees after course completion.
