Coronavirus Position Statement and Updates. ACLS courses are being offered as scheduled. During this uncertain time we reserve the right to postpone a session depending on class numbers (min 3 participants) and/or the situation with COVID-19.
The Heart and Stroke has stated the following on March 19, 2020: We recognize it is critical for some organizations to maintain their current training schedules as CPR is a life-saving skill. If postponing training is not possible, we require instructors and participants to implement the additional personal protective equipment measures (outlined in the network communication on Friday, March 13, 2020) and adhere to existing Heart & Stroke IRRP requirements for equipment decontamination during training sessions. We want to reinforce the importance of infection control practices and other best practices that will help reduce the risk of disease transmission.
