COVID-19 Resources

MSERT will be resuming its activities on McGill’s downtown campus in Fall 2021 as per the university’s decision to return to campus.
We are following the public health guidelines of the Quebec government and McGill University, and are actively monitoring the situation for any updates.

Quebec Health Recommendations

  • Wash your hands often with soap under warm running water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette:
    • 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.
  • If you are sick, avoid contact with more vulnerable people, including older adults and people who have a chronic disease.
  • Avoid direct contact when you greet someone, such as shaking hands, and use alternative ways to greet people.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand rub if soap and water are not available.

First Aid courses offered Off-Campus

If you are unable to register to your course of interest through MSERT, you may still be able to take it through another organization. Please refer to the list below for other courses available in Montréal.
