COVID-19 in Vietnam : A Statement from VSLC

by | March 25, 2020 | News | 0 comments

Updated: 25/03/20202

There have been a number of cases of COVID-19 infection in Vietnam. VSLC is monitoring the situation and monitoring advice from the Ministry of Health and World Health Organization.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, VSLC have suspended all public courses until May. Anyone booked on a public course prior to May is eligible for a full refund or to be transferred to a later course if preferred. We are constantly monitoring the situation and following advice from the appropriate authorities.

You can still get in touch with VSLC to learn about private training for your organisation, group or business – our team is ready to respond!

To further limit any risk on any training courses at this current time, please note:

  • If you have a cough, are sneezing, experiencing breathing difficulties and or have a fever, we ask that you do not take part in our training courses until you have fully recovered and taken medical advice. It is recommended to seek medical advice early in the event you experience these symptoms.
  • If you have come in to contact with a person suspected of having the COVID-19 virus within the latest 14 days, or traveled to mainland China or any area where there is an outbreak of the virus, we ask that you do not attend our courses until after at least 14 days has passed.
  • We use manikins for practical work in most of our courses. Our manikins are cleaned prior to use. As part of learning cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), you will practice giving ‘mouth to mouth’ rescue breaks on these manikins. Manikins will be cleaned properly between use by each participant – however, if at this time you do not feel comfortable participating in this aspect of the course, you will be exempt from doing so.
  • It is important to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before and after training, and before and after each practical element of our courses. Your trainer will allow time for you to do this.

Many of these precautions are common sense and represent best practice for reducing the risk of cross infection during first aid generally.

Due to the current situation globally with the COVID-19 virus, we are also temporarily expanding the scope of our health screening, To ensure the safety of yourself and other participants, we ask that you please complete this form in full and submit this form at least 24 hours before the start of your training course. 

VSLC will continue to monitor advice from the Vietnam Ministry of Health and The World Health Organization. In the event that guidance changes and VSLC is required to cancel a course, a full refund will be offered or a transfer to another course / date as preferred.

If you would like further advice on the COVID-19 situation we recommend you follow advice from the Vietnam Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization. If you have any questions about our courses please do not hesitate to contact us.
