MRS Learners: Emergency Preparedness - Coronavirus Outbreak

Jan. 26, 2020

Dear MRS Students and Faculty,

I am forwarding on to you the communication from the Faculty of Medicine with regard to the Coronavirus Outbreak. Everything outlined below will also apply to students in the MRS Program.

I have attached the "Principles of Maintenance of the Educational Processes During Times of Crisis" developed previously between the Hospitals and the University, as well as the specific guidelines for the MRS Program.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update as information is forthcoming.

In the meantime:

  • Hand hygiene is vital during this period and should be performed routinely
  • If you haven’t already received the influenza vaccination, we highly recommend this be done
  • Ensure adherence to your hospital/institutions measures taken to prevent transmission

Should you have any concerns please don't hesitate to reach out.
