Face coverings are required to be worn at all of Sharp’s non-medical facilities when physical distancing of 6 feet or more is not possible and in common areas such as stairwells, elevators, break rooms, lobbies and hallways. You must bring a face covering with you to class. Anyone who does not have a face covering will be asked to reschedule.
Due to recommended precautions against coronavirus (COVID-19), we will not have any students demonstrate breathing directly into a mask, mouthpiece or manikin. For purposes of our classes, you will practice and test using a bag-valve-mask for respirations. Before we start class, we ask that you wash your hands and use hand sanitizer as needed during the class. If you are currently ill, especially if you have respiratory symptoms, please notify the instructor and reschedule for another date once you are well.
Participants who arrive more than five minutes after the class start time will be asked to reschedule.
It is mandatory that you bring a face covering and a photo ID with you to class in order to proceed with testing. If you are not able to fulfill these requirements, you will be required to reschedule.
If your class is at the Sharp Corporate Office (Spectrum), it is also mandatory that you bring your Sharp ID badge if you are an employee.
