Classes are still being held
Quality Career Pathways has communicated with the Nebraska Department of Education, Douglas County Board of Health, and Department of Health and Human services as it pertains to the school closing requirement stated by Gov. Pete Ricketts and we will continue to operate. Quality Career Pathways will continue to monitor, communicate and make updates to our procedures to ensure the health and well-being of students, instructors, staff and their families.
Below are the precautions we’ve implemented to mitigate the spread of illness:
- Class sizes restricted to less than 9 students plus instructor.
- Instructors will take student’s temperatures with a forehand scan at the start of each day. Anyone registering a temperature above 100.4 degrees must speak with a staff member about next steps.
- All students will complete a screening form at the beginning of class.
- The Hand Washing Skills section will be moved earlier in the curriculum to be presented on the first day of class (versus second day of class).
- All students and employees will be required to wash their hands upon entering the building. This means before class starts, and after every break.
- Hand washing reminders and flyers will be posted throughout the building.
- At the conclusion of each day, the office staff with sanitize the entire building.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve, we will do our best to keep you informed. During this challenging time, we wish to extend our support to applicants, students, instructors, employers and staff in any way we can. If COVID-19 affects your ability to complete a class, please contact us and we will work with you individually. If you are unable to complete a class unrelated to COVID-19, standard refund policies may apply.
You need to be vigilant too
The NUMBER ONE way to keep yourself and loved ones safe is to prevent the spread of viruses through proper hand washing. The Center for Disease Control states it should be done for 20 seconds with soap and water.
As members of the health care community, we need to be the leaders in this fight. Make sure you follow the guidelines EVERY time. And remember, hand sanitizer is not a replacement for washing your hands. If you are unable to wash your hands, then alcohol-based hand sanitizer is the next best solution. Also, avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Now, time to scrub in
