HOW IS OREGON MEDICAL TRAINING  HANDLING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?

December 8, 2020

 

Oregon Medical Training is taking the necessary precautions to ensure student safety in regards to COVID-19. Along with Gov. Kate Brown's order to require Oregonians to wear face masks within indoor public spaces, we are also requiring students to receive a pump of hand sanitizer. We are requiring students to social distance six-feet apart and allowing instructors to check student's temperature before entering the classroom. 

We are asking our students to stay home if they're sick or revealing any flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms. It's crucial for every person to isolate if they're not feeling well, and we encourage they take the necessary steps to seek medical assistance immediately.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the coronavirus. If you show any of the symptoms below, it is encourage you stay home and contact your instructor:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headaches

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or severe vomiting

  • Severe cases of diarrhea

If you have been in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19, please do isolate and do not enter the classroom.

To help students succeed during the pandemic, Oregon Medical Training will be continuing to do remote operations throughout Spring Term 2021 until further notice to ensure our instructors and students are safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
