COVID-19 and Attending FVREB Courses Or Events

by Baldev S. Gill, Chief Executive Officer

We’re in the midst of the flu season and concerns about COVID-19 are increasing.

Your Board is monitoring this situation and is following the advice of health experts and relevant government agencies.  At this time, the Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the public health risk of the virus as “Low for Canada”.

As such, we will continue to host FVREB courses and events. We do, however, urge people who feel unwell to stay at home and do their part in preventing the spread of illness.

To reduce the possibility of contracting or spreading the flu or COVID-19, public health officials recommend that you wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, avoid others who are unwell, and stay home when you are sick.

If you’re feeling ill and have a course coming up, you can receive a full refund if you cancel or withdraw from the course with two business days’ notice.

If you’re too ill to attend on the day of your course and you haven’t cancelled, we’ll work with you to transfer you to the next available course date or to a different course of the same cost.
