COVID 19 UPDATE

As of midnight 3/19/2020, Humboldt County DHHS is implementing a Shelter in Place Order!  What does this mean for training with NCSC?  Training that supports essential services, in particular healthcare providers, was exempted from the Order with compliance with CDC, DHHS and AHA guidance.  The Shelter in Place Order is scheduled to go through 4/9/2020 before assessment.  NCSC will, therefore, be rescheduling all other training, including tailgate meetings and any site visits where 6 feet of physical distancing  is not possible.  BLS Provider CPR training for healthcare providers who may be treating or coming into contact with patients with COVID 19 will continue, with reduced class size (under 10), physical distancing, and proper use of PPE, and no sharing of equipment. 

We will continue to be here for your regulatory questions, safe work practice questions, and any program, plan or policy development you will need.  Be well, be safe!
