Communicable Disease Plan
(Updated September 2023)
As the Province of BC continues to implement measures to fight COVID-19 , ProSafe will continue to follow the direction from the Provincial Health Officer (PHO). The following will be in effect as of November 17, 2022. Starting November 17, 2022, people who have COVID-19 are no longer required to self-isolate. However, it is still important for people with symptoms to stay home as much as possible to reduce any potential spread of illness until your symptoms have improved, and you are able to participant in your usual activities.
If you are experiencing flu like symptoms such as a fever or coughing, please do not come to the campus. Stay home until your symptoms are gone (without the use of medicines to alleviate). Be sure to contact ProSafe before your class and let us know you will not be attending due to illness. Only those who contact ProSafe prior to the start of course will be eligible to reschedule. If you are attending a multi-day course and are ill after the first day contact ProSafe as soon as possible.
- Face masks/coverings will be recommended while on campus. If a participant is seen coughing or sneezing they will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the class. If a participant refuses to wear a mask or is showing signs of a fever or further illness they will be removed from the class.
- Hand hygiene will continue to be enforced and sanitizer will remain available.
- A brand new CPR pocket mask will be provided to all first aid participants.
- ProSafe will ensure there is good use of ventilation when courses are scheduled.
Thank you for your support. Stay Safe!
