CLOSURE OF ALL SCHOOLS IN QUEBEC FOR 2 WEEKS.
Following the request of the Quebec government, Musitechnic will be closed to students for 2 weeks. For the moment, the expected return date is March 30th.
*** Since the situation is evolving rapidly, we will notify you by email and on the Musitechnic.com website with the latest developments.
The other directives from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education sent to educational institutions on March 12th are still in force regarding COVID-19.
Musitechnic Formation will follow the following recommendations until further notice:
Travel outside of Canada
As a precautionary measure, travel outside Canada for all employees that was required to be done in the performance of their duties is no longer authorized as of today.
Preventive measures -Preventive isolation
Effective immediately, if a staff member or student returns from a stay outside of Canada, the mandatory 14-day isolation period, as prescribed by Public Health, must be respected.
Mandatory segregation therefore does not apply to persons who have travelled during the last few days, particularly during the spring break. However, we invite members of the community who have been abroad to closely monitor their symptoms during the two weeks following their return to Québec.
If you experience symptoms, you should isolate yourself immediately and contact 1 877 644-4545. We also ask you to follow this procedure if you have flu-like symptoms without having travelled abroad.
Obligation to report
Musitechnic is now asking for your cooperation and invites you to inform your superior (for employees) or the general management via directionetudes@musitechnic.
net (for students) if you or someone you have been in contact with has visited a country at risk.
As announced by the Prime Minister on March 12, all indoor gatherings of 250 or more people in one room are prohibited. The Prime Minister also asked at a press conference to cancel all unnecessary events.
To contribute to the public health effort, the College has taken the decision to suspend certain activities. Other cancellations are being considered. Community members involved in the affected files will be informed in due course.
Currently, we have no cases of coronavirus in Musitechnic. Courses are maintained online in accordance with the recommendations of government authorities.
Because of the progression of coronavirus in the world, we remind you of the importance of doing your part by following the preventive measures communicated by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.
Recommended hygiene measures :
Wash your hands often with warm running water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Observe good hygiene when coughing or sneezing and cover your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs.
If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards.
In recent weeks, preventive initiatives have been put in place in our establishment. Disinfectant wipes are available in each laboratory and at the studio level. We ask that you clean your keyboard, mouse and work surface at the beginning of your lab or studio meeting.
In addition, the housekeeping team follows a strict protocol emphasizing the cleaning of contact surfaces such as door handles and switches.
