  • Face Mask and gloves

    Wear your face mask and bring your gloves

    Cloth face coverings are used to protect others. They prevent the virus from entering the air coming from individuals wearing the face covering, which helps prevent the spread of the virus o People may have the COVID-19 without showing symptoms – face coverings will help prevent the spread to others

    classes, and before and after breaks in the class, including hand washing for at least 20 seconds

    CPR Instruction: o Whenever possible, use a 1:1 student-to-manikin ratio. o Manikins should be placed at least 3 feet apart during CPR training in accordance with social distancing recommendations. o If possible, students should use a pocket mask with a one-way valve for providing ventilations during CPR skills practice. o If a pocket mask is not available, students should simulate breaths only. Mouthto-mouth ventilations should not be performed on manikins at this time, even with face shields. o Students in Basic Life Support for Health Care and Professional Rescuer classes must use a pocket mask with one-way valve. Students should also be using bag masks during two-rescuer practice scenarios. Bag masks should be decontaminated after each use.
