COVID-19 and CPR, What we are doing to protect you.
UPDATE: As of March 29th at 8:00PM We ARE OPEN for all regularly scheduled BLS Provider CPR AED courses for Healthcare Providers and all Medical Professionals, Pharmacists, Hospital Staff, and Hospital Support Staff. We are TEMPORARILY CLOSED for layperson CPR and CPR First Aid classes to comply with the NY state PAUSE declaration. We plan to reopen our full schedule of regular lay person CPR and First Aid courses beginning Thursday April 16th, or as soon as the PAUSE order is lifted.
At Frontline Health CPR Training, the safety of our students and instructors is our utmost concern. We are taking precautions to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission during CPR classes to make sure you have a safe training environment. We train according to, and use equipment that meets the standards of the American Red Cross and American Heart Association. All classes are now limited to at most 9 participants.
Whenever possible we use single use disposable equipment. Some equipment such as CPR manikins and AED training devices are used repeatedly. All equipment is thoroughly sanitized after every single use according to the manufacturers recommendations and CDC guidelines for infection control.
Each student in our training center will have their own sanitized CPR Manikin, CPR Pocket mask, and single use one way valve. Our students will not have to share equipment with other students.
You will NOT be asked to put your mouth directly on a Manikin.
Classroom surfaces, door knobs, and other touch points are cleaned after every training session.
All participants and instructors are encouraged to practice good hygiene, including hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after the course, and before and after snack or meal breaks.
We encourage social distancing. Students are asked to spread out and keep 6 feet of space between each other at all times.
We encourage students to stay home when you are sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If a scheduled student has identified symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), they are advised to not attend a training class. You will be able to postpone your class for any reason and will NOT have to pay to reschedule.
We encourage you to avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
We encourage you to cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Our classrooms are stocked with alcohol-based hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes for your use during CPR class.
