Keeping You Safe During Covid

Breath for Life Inc, owned, managed and overseen by Registered Nurses, has a deep appreciation and concern for public safety and understands the public’s concern around social and public gatherings in relation to covid-19. Breath for Life works with Alberta Health Services in its commitment to keeping the public safe. With Alberta Health Services input we have kept the public safe throughout the pandemic. Breath for Life is committed to following all sanitation/disinfection practices and will not compromise this. Courses offered will follow strict public health requirements to ensure safety of all who attend a course at Breath for Life.

Effective August 1st 2020, the city of Edmonton has passed a bylaw to mandate masks in all indoor spaces. Breath for Life requires that you bring your own mask and wear it while at our facility. Wearing a mask does not exempt you from social distancing, and Breath for Life is committed to both strategies to flatten the curve. Further to these measures as of November 27, 2020 Breath for Life has reduced its enrollment into all courses in line with the mandatory restrictions imposed by the Government and AHS.

Breath for Life’s Implementation strategy to flatten the curve includes:

1) When you enter the Breath for Life facility you will be screened to ensure everyone’s safety.
2) If you are not wearing a mask, you will be asked to wear one. If you do not have one Breath for Life will have masks available for purchase. You will be asked to leave if you are non-compliant.
3) You will be asked to wash your hands before entering the classroom, which has been sanitized for your safety, and before leaving the building. Hand-sanitization is also available.
4) Chairs (that are disinfected after each class) are spaced 2 meters or more apart and social distancing will be emphasized during your stay at Breath for Life.
5) During skill practice, students will use their own equipment. Each individual is provided with their own manikins, AED, and BVMs (for BLS classes). Students will not be practicing skills in pairs. But team involvement principles will be emphasized.
6) After each formal break,  touch surfaces will be disinfected (door knobs, taps, soap dispensers, toilet flusher handles, toilet seats, paper toilet dispensers, door stall handles, etc….).
7) Equipment will be disinfected after student use – process reviewed and approved by AHS.
8) A thorough cleaning/sanitation of the classroom and common areas will be performed after participants exit the building.

Please note: No refunds will be issued to students who postpone, cancel or reschedule their attendance in a course as it is accepted that you registered into your course in good faith with the intent of taking it. Each postponement, cancellation or reschedule will be reviewed on an individual basis. Please contact our office via email to reschedule your class: breathforlifeinc@shaw.ca

Please check the website regularly for course status and updates.

Breath for Life understands the stress that this pandemic has created for everyone and appreciates your patience during this unprecedented time.
