Coronavirus Position Statement and Updates. BLS 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 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.

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
