COVID-19 OUTBREAK RESPONSE PLAN
Canada Aviation Academy has developed this COVID-19 outbreak response plan in case a staff member, student, or a visitor to our campus is detected positive for COVID-19.
Following are the steps to be followed:
- Collaborate with office of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), follow their guidance and provide them the support where required.
- Keep all the Attendance & Declaration Forms filled by that individual and the close contacts ready for potential PHO investigation.
- The Operations and usage of the campus will be closed for a thorough disinfection of the building will be done as per the University of the Fraser Valley cleaning protocols laid here : https://www.ufv.ca/media/assets/risk-and-safety/covid-19-safety-response/operations-guidelines/UFV-COVID-19-Operations-Guideline-Cleaning-Protocols.pdf
- After disinfection the operations may resume normal operations
- The Individual will not be allowed to come back to the premises without a ‘negative’ result of the COVID-19 test or a letter from a doctor / health Authority stating that the individual has now recovered and has no risk of transmitting COVID-19 disease.
- We will demonstrate flexibility for personal circumstances and provide sick leave.
- Encourage staff members and students to take care of their mental health and wellbeing by being informed by support services available.
- Communicating messages around COVID-19 in a positive manner and speaking out against negative attitudes and being mindful of any stigma and discrimination, thus encouraging people to communicate any feelings of illness.
- Support will be available and be mindful of any discrimination.
- Assistance will be given to arrange meals and medication on a daily basis (if required).
- Monitoring and screening daily or testing.
