With the growing concern and increased number of COVID-19 cases in Canada, Ricks Driving School is taking necessary precautions by implementing preventive measures in order to control the spread of the virus by exercising extreme caution in order to prevent further spread of COViD-19.

Human coronaviruses are most commonly spread through respiratory droplets (generated by coughing and sneezing), close personal contact (touching or shaking hands) and contact with something with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. Most common symptoms include fever, cough difficulty breathing and pneumonia in both lungs. It is important to note that symptoms of the virus can appear up to 14 days after being exposed

Ricks Driving School office staff and driving instructors are responsible for keeping their classrooms, work areas and vehicles clean and disinfected at all times including after every in-class and in-car training.

There are no vaccinations available for the prevention of COVID-19, but there are precautions that can be taken in order to decrease the spread should you experience symptoms.

– Remain at home (Self-isolation)

– Avoid individuals with chronic conditions,
   Compromised immune systems and older

– Wash your hands frequently with soap and
   Warm water for 20 seconds

–  Cover your mouth and nose with your arm when coughing and sneezing.
