Canadian Forces Response to COVID-19
In an effort to resume Cadets in the current COVID-19 environment, the Commander of the National Cadet and Junior Ranger has ordered the following procedures take place this training year:
(1) Prior to departing home for any in-person activities, all adult personnel and cadets will complete the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool (https://www.thrive.health/healthcanada-self-assessment-tool) and follow the recommended guidance from Public Health Agency of Canada. Furthermore, anyone with symptoms of influenza is not to report for duty to any in-person activities;
(2) Without exception, the non-medical masks (NMMs) will be worn at all times by all adult personnel and cadets at any in-person activities (indoors and outdoors) including Corps/Squadron, CNS, CES and CFS. This will also apply to in-person RDA/NDA upon resumption not before 15 January 2021. If a cadet or adult staff member reports that they cannot wear a NMM due to health restrictions their participation is to be limited to virtual activities only and the RMLO must be advised through the chain of command.
RMLO will advise the RCSU CO and place the appropriate participation limitation on the cadet/member’s medical record;
(3) Procurement and distribution of reusable NMMs will not occur before 15 October 2020. In the interim, cadets and adult members
are to bring their own NMM to in-person activities; and
(4) when the sanitization/disinfection of facilities is not performed by the landlord then the corps/squadron staff are to do so in accordance with the Public Health Agency of Canada guide to cleaning and disinfecting public spaces found at this link:
https://www.canada.ca/en/publichealth/services/publications/diseases-conditions/cleaning-disinfectingpublic-spaces.html. Additionally, corps/squadron staff are to consult their applicable provincial or territorial health association/agency website for further guidance on local PHMs pertaining to the sanitization/disinfection of facilities;
