Pandemic (Covid-19)

Policy & Consideration

FACT:  Though we ALL are having a learning curve during this time, we ALL should have a sense of hypervigilance and we ALL should be pandemic-conscious for the safety and well-being of everyone.

The following are recommended modifications and health precautions extrapolating from clinical research and public expectations.

Equipment and Classroom management:

  • We are encouraging multiple small class sizes of no more than nine (9) students per session when proper spacing permits.

  • 1:1 ratio; student per manikin.

  • We are NOT performing ventilations/rescue breaths with the manikins during our regular Heartsaver CPR AED classes.

  • Delivery of breaths will be simulated/verbalized only.

  • Sanitizer wipes will be provided for students to sanitize equipment before, during, and after the session.

  • We are practicing as much social distancing as possible with a relatively large space staged accordingly.

Student health management and expectations

  • All students are required to provide proof of vaccination or negative covid test (taken 72 hrs before training date).

  • We are requiring any type of universal masking for everyone to be worn throughout the training session (which includes over mouth AND nose).

  • Wash hands upon arrival and place on gloves prior to handling equipment; 2 pairs of latex-free gloves will be provided.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for each student to use during any class.

  • We are discouraging the sharing of writing utensils and other personal items.

  • We are reminding everyone to limit, if not eliminate, any face touching.

  • We are adopting other possible protective measures for everyone's health and safety.

Think You Have COVID-19?

  • Monitor symptoms.

  • Rest.

  • Wash hands with soap and water often.
