Message re: Mask-Fitting
As a result of a policy change in Alberta Health Services - the province wide health-care provider which includes Edmonton and area hospitals - visiting students scheduled to attend these sites must be fitted with a face mask that meets the N95 standard, using 3M company products.
Each student engaging in a teaching-hospital placement is now required to carry evidence that this requirement has been met.
It is expected that students from outside Edmonton will arrange to meet this standard within their local university according to guidelines set by their Occupational Health and Safety Office.
