We require you to fill out the following questionnaire each day prior to attending any on-site courses to assist in determining your fitness to participate during the COVID-19 pandemic and to provide a safe environment for instructors, assistants and course participants.
A copy of the CPA’s Guideline for Returning to In-Person Education and the Infection Control Protocol are available here. Please review these documents in advance of attending any on-site courses to ensure that you are aware of the requirements imposed upon you as well as the equipment you are required to bring with you each day of your course schedule.
The questionnaire intends to identify new symptoms or worsening of symptoms related to allergies, chronic or pre-existing conditions. Those with symptoms related solely to pre-existing conditions or allergies may still attend AIM courses.
Do you have any of the following symptoms which are new or worsened if associated with allergies, chronic or pre-existing conditions: fever >37.8°C, cough or worsening of chronic cough, new or worsening shortness of breath, new or worsening difficulty breathing, sore throat, and/or runny nose?
Have you had chills, painful swallowing, stuffy nose, headache, muscle or joint ache, feeling unwell, fatigue or severe exhaustion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or unexplained loss of appetite, loss of sense of smell or taste or conjunctivitis (pink eye) not related to a pre-existing medical condition in the last 24 hours?
Have you or anyone in your household returned to Canada from outside the country (including USA) in the past 14 days, travelled out of province (please disclose and discuss out of province travel with the course instructor)?
Have you, or anyone in your household been in close contact* in the last 14 days with someone who has a probable** or confirmed case of COVID-19?
*Close contact includes providing care, living with or otherwise having close prolonged contact (within 2 meters) while the person was ill, or contact with infectious bodily fluids (e.g. from a cough or sneeze) while not wearing recommended Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
**Probable case is a person with clinical illness who had close contact to a lab-confirmed COVID-19 case, while not wearing appropriate PPE, OR a person with clinical illness who meets the COVID-19 exposure criteria, AND in whom laboratory diagnosis of COVID-19 is inconclusive.
