As everyone is aware, we are encountering a worldwide pandemic in regard to the COVID-19 Coronavirus disease. Here at ECA, we have taken steps to minimize the likelihood of contamination by regularly cleaning door handles, handrails and all commonly touched surfaces with Micro-Ban disinfectant spray. Additionally, we have placed two dozen hand sanitizing stations throughout the building.
Our staff of instructors and administrators are on high alert for any person that is showing signs of flulike symptoms. We are not assuming that every cough and sniffle may be a confirmation of infection but at the same time we will advise the potentially infected individual, if the symptoms are accompanied by a high fever, to contact a medical professional.
Non-emergency field operations are suspended until further notice.
ECA will follow the lead of the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They provide up-to-date, reliable information on coronavirus as the situation unfolds.
As the expression goes, we are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and although things are changing daily, at this point we are planning to continue to provide our regular training at ECA. We will keep you informed if circumstances change.
