Our Response to COVID-19

Effective July 1 – masks are no longer mandatory in our training centres but we ask everyone to please continue wearing a mask to protect the health and safety of our brothers and sisters. 

We are focusing on essential training while keeping our staff and members safe and healthy, please see our calendars for the current schedule. Schedules may change suddenly based on public health recommendations.

If you have a fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, stuffy or runny nose please DO NOT come in to our training centres. If we see anyone showing these signs we will tell them to go home.

Masks/Gloves – will be provided when necessary, please bring your own if you can.

We will be limiting the number of people on the premises – class sizes will be small in order to maintain appropriate physical distancing.

If you need to use a computer for an online course or orientation, please call us first to make an appointment.

No coffee, tea, sugar, creamer or cups will be provided – we will provide bottled water for members to drink while at our facilities.

Practice physical distancing – keep at least 6 feet between people at all times. Our entrances may or may not be marked but we all know how far 6 feet is. This includes during breaks/at lunch. Please do not carpool to your course with anyone that isn’t from your household.

Practice respiratory etiquette – if you need to cough or sneeze, please do so into a tissue then immediately dispose of it, or into the inner bend of your elbow and then wash your hands.

Wash your hands – frequently, with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. We will have hand sanitizer in strategic locations if you can’t wash your hands immediately.

Avoid touching surfaces – when possible, we will keep doors open to minimize contact but please be wary of anything you touch and wash your hands as often as possible to prevent spreading the virus. We will be sanitizing surfaces throughout the day and after hours but we cannot keep everything clean all the time.
