UPDATED MARCH 12, 2020
If you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, are an older adult or are determined to be at higher risk, we encourage you to not attend any classes.
At this time, ABC Institute Apprenticeship College plans to move forward with all scheduled classes. We encourage students and instructors to plan to attend if they are feeling well, are not elderly or are not determined to be a high-risk individual.
All related technical instruction (RTI)/class absences are still required to be made up. Please refer to the absentee policy found in your student handbook on page 13.
Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
ABC Institute Apprenticeship College staff is meeting on a regular basis and actively monitoring the CDC updates for further information. While the risk remains low at this time, the safety of our students, guests and employers is our priority and we understand things could change.
For any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to info@WeTrain.org.
Safety and Health Preparedness Plan
Our safety and health strategy for the ABC Institute Apprenticeship College offers an opportunity to be an example for world-class safety and health proactive readiness:
We ask that the ABC Institute Apprenticeship College be a handshake-free environment during this time.
ABC Institute Apprenticeship College has asked housekeeping to increase cleaning and disinfection across all high-volume touchpoints throughout the building including restrooms, and entrances/exits.
ABC Institute Apprenticeship College is committed to providing a safe environment to all and are closely monitoring the activities of COVID-19. We are taking the following precautionary measures
Recommendations from the CDC
- Avoid close contact with people who are showing signs of sickness.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19. Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or especially going to the bathroom. Should soap and water not be readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash your hands with soap and water if they are visibly dirty.
Please notify an ABC Institute Apprenticeship College staff member if you begin to feel sick.
