Level 5 cadets should choose one of the two days. But must attend at least one day as important information will be given that will impact your ability to be instructors this year. This is especially important for new instructors.
Parents!!! This section is very important for you to read!!!
The Carleton Street Armoury will only be accessible by the Gated Entrance facing Carleton Street (across from the Fredericton Public Library). Do not attempt to access the building using the Riverside door. The door will be controlled by a Duty Officer at all times. The following 5 questions will be asked to all cadets before they enter the building. If your child answers any of the 5 questions with a "Yes" answer, your child will not be allowed to enter the building. This means that you should not leave until your child tells you he/she is cleared to enter the building. Parents are not permitted inside the Armoury as this will affect the mandated Indoor Gathering Restriction. This is also because we need to have complete control of the building.
Here are the 5 questions that will be asked:
1) Are you experiencing any severe difficulty breathing or severe chest pain?
2) Are you experiencing any mild or moderate shortness of breath or unable to lay down due
to being short of breath?
3. Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?
- new or worsening cough?
- an increased temperature?
- feeling of fever or chills?
- experiencing muscle aches?
- loss of smell or taste?
- feeling unwell?
- Have/had any upset stomach or diarrhea?
4) Have you traveled outside Canada within the last 14 days (including the United States)?
5) In the last 14 days, have you had close contact with a person with symptoms of COVID-
19 or who has traveled outside the Atlantic provinces?
Again, if your cadet answers "Yes" to any of the questions your cadet will not be allowed entry into the building. We will ask that your cadet remains away from physical cadet activities for two weeks prior to an attempt to return.
We ask that your cadet brings a Community Non-Medical Face Mask while attending Physical Training. They will be expected to keep their mask on during the entire evening or morning. If your cadet does not own a face mask, one will be provided upon their arrival.
Once they have entered the Armoury, cadets will undergo a short orientation to go over the rules and guidelines established for the building. This will include the contact tracing sheet, general guidelines, sanitization, traffic orientation and restrictions, common areas, and expectations.
Should you have any questions with regards to COVID-19 Safety Guidelines, please feel free to contact Captain Allain at the following address (email@example.com).
REMINDER: Lt Jennings would like you all to try on your uniforms to see what fits and to report what doesn't. Bring your uniform pieces that don’t fit so we can give you a replacement.
Also, feel free to reach out to Lt Jennings via email should you already know you need a new uniform piece. Please include what your current size is and how it needs to be adjusted. firstname.lastname@example.org
