Eastern Division NSP COVID-19 Advisory
The Eastern Division Board of Directors has been monitoring the evolving situation with respect to COVID-19. The EDBOD has not taken this health concern lightly. The health and safety of all of our members are a priority. We have taken guidance from our Medical Advisor(s) and the information of both the CDC and World Health Organization on recommendations for preparedness and prevention recommendations. We are reminded that as health care providers we are trained in BSI and risk mitigation procedures for infectious diseases.
In considering the upcoming Eastern Division events and our normal Patrol duties, we advise ALL to follow the CDC recommendations for participants in Patrol activities. If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, fever, etc., you are asked to stay home until symptoms resolve for 24 hours or you are cleared by your doctor to return to public activities (school, work, events). This is considered a priority.
In order for these events to be successful and minimize exposure to all participants, we cannot emphasize enough that we need your help in making decisions on whether or not you pose a risk to others. We trust that each participant will evaluate their own health and make appropriate decisions regarding their attendance.
Participants should be aware that screening and precautions will be taken at the upcoming events including but not limited to temperature screening, removal of those showing symptoms from the large group activities and potentially being sent home.
Should you determine that you should not or cannot participate in one of the upcoming events, please note that refunds will be provided as appropriate.
