COVID 19 Updating!

ALERT!  Cal-OSHA is revising and updating the COVID 19 Emergency Standard (3205), with an Standards Board meeting May 20, 2021.  They will be reviewing the revised standard proposed language just put out May 7th.  We will keep you posted on these changes that include vaccinations and many other updates to the standard.  Members will be receiving a detail of the main highlights of those changes in the monthly member newsletter - Regulatory Journal.  Keep masking and social distancing, and get your vaccine as soon as you are able - We ARE in this together!

TRAINING COURSES & COVID 19

During this time of concern with the spread of coronavirus (COVID 19), NCSC will continue to provide its regular courses.  However, we are adhering to new American Heart Association guidance as well as both state and local DHHS (Department of Health & Human Services) guidance on keeping all students safe and healthy during the current coronavirus pandemic. 

Number one, we ask all students not to attend courses when ill, under any circumstances.  And, although, NCSC and the courses we provide, which are mandated through State regulations, are excluded from this guidance, we will be implementing the precautions laid out by State, County and the AHA.  In our new and larger home, with restricted class sizes, we are able to utilize social distancing, as recommended by AHA, DHHS and WHO, by arranging seating to keep all students 6 feet apart.  Additionally, precautions are being taken for CPR courses when working with manikins, including the use of pocket masks with individual valves in lieu of faceshields to prevent any spread of the virus.  The use of gloves will also be further enforced during class, as well as liberal use of hand sanitizer.  As the American Heart Association has stated, you can stay safe and save a life.

NCSC will continue to follow the most current science and guidance on keeping all our students safe.  All classes not requiring hands on practice, will be done as web based classes through Cisco Webex platform.  It's not quite the same as seeing you all in person, but the perk is taking a class in your PJs!  Please feel free to contact our office with any questions on these precautions.
