Coronavirus Position Statement and Updates. BLS recert Courses are being offered as scheduled.  Small class sizes are emphasized to meet and exceed the social distancing recommendations. During this uncertain time we reserve the right to postpone a BLS recert session depending on class numbers (min 4 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.

 As Breath for Life is managed/operated by Registered Nurses were are committed to following and exceeding sterilization/sanitation practices:

1) When you enter our facility you will be asked 3 questions: To the best of your knowledge have you been exposure to anyone with the virus? Are you feeling ill at the moment (sore throat, fever, etc…) Have you been abroad in the past 3 weeks? If the answer to any of these questions are “yes” you will be asked to reschedule your class.
2) Prior to entering our sterilized classroom you will be asked to wash your hands. You will be provided with a pair of gloves.
3) Chairs (that are wiped after each class) are spaced 2 meters or more apart. Each individual is provided with their own manikins, AED , and BVMs
4) During skill practice social distancing will be enforced by each student using their own equipment.
5) After breaks and for each use of the washrooms commonly touched surfaces are sterilized (door knobs, taps, toilet flusher and toilet seats, paper toilet dispensers and door stalls, etc….
