COVID-19 Safety Precautions

Position Statement

First Responder YEG is managed by current and upcoming healthcare professionals. Public safety is our priority. We are committed to follow Alberta Health Services, Heart and Stroke, and Occupational Health and Safety guidelines regarding sanitation and disinfection for the health and safety of our staff, and students.

Our Strategy

The following strategies are in place to help reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  1. Before starting the class, all students must complete the screening questionnaire, which will ask them if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
  2. Each student will have their temperature checked to assess for fever.
  3. Students will maintain 2m of distance at all times during the class.
  4. Each student will receive their own manikin. Each student is asked to bring their own mask, or purchase a new mask at registration, or at the start of the class.
  5. There will be no more than 6 people per class, to ensure physical distancing among students.
