OTOA Pandemic Plan
Policing and police training comes with inherent risks. Mitigation of those risks comes with proper planning and preparedness.
Every effort will be taken to ensure that social distance guidelines are followed.
Wearing a facial covering of the mouth and nose will be required.
Health and safety screening will be conducted before any OTOA training commences.
All OTOA training is voluntary and all participants are mandated to provide a signed OTOA release of liability waiver and assumption of risk.
CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering as a measure to contain the wearer's respiratory droplets and help protect others.
Participants and OTOA staff should not wear a cloth face covering if they have trouble breathing, cannot tolerate wearing it, or can't remove it without help.
Cloth face coverings are not considered personal protective equipment and may not protect the wearers from exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. However, cloth face coverings may prevent participants and OTOA staff, including those who don't know they have the virus, from spreading it to others.
Common sense prevails - ALWAYS

Diarrhea OTOA recognizes that the training and preparedness of all first responders are vital to the core mission of our membership - SAVING LIVES.
Safety is our priority for all participants and OTOA staff.
