In-person procedures

Prior to leaving the house
- Check announcements on website & email to confirm no updates.

- Dorcas centre: One-way traffic into the gym through building main doors; exit through gym emergency exit.

Masks
Regardless of the provincial announcement Cadets will continue to follow the DND/CAF mask policy until such time we are directed otherwise.

Masks remain an effective PHM by preventing respiratory droplets from contaminating others or landing on surfaces. The following is the enduring CJCR direction on the use of NMMs:
- all CJCR personnel will wear a NMM in indoor common / public areas;
- NMMs must be well-fitted (non-gaping);
- keep the masks on when speaking in the vicinity or in an enclosed room with others, even when other PHMs such as physical distancing can be maintained;
- the removal of masks may be considered while adhering to other PHMs if one is alone, outdoors where physical distancing is maintained, when eating or drinking;
- cloth masks should be changed as soon as they become damp or soiled.
