Update on First Aid for Covid times

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, it may be prudent to review the first aid procedures you have been taught. For instance:

  • Pay extra attention to hand and general hygiene
  • Assessing the environment and deciding what is a greater risk to yourself and the casualty. Would the immediate danger outweigh the risk of contracting Covid-19?
  • Including extra PPE in a first aid kit i.e. face masks, gloves, aprons, etc.
