Coronavirus Health and Hygiene Protocol
UPDATED: June 1st, 2020
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, safety is our first priority which includes the health of our employees, instructors, students, customers, and everyone they interact with. We have established guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Salt Lake City Guidelines, and State Guidelines for our concealed carry classes which limit interactions to groups of no more than 20 people.
To Keep Everyone Safe:
- Face Masks: REQUIRED For All Appointments & Indoor Training Courses. Please bring your own mask or face covering.
In training courses, our instructors are providing verbal information that students must be able to hear and understand, they may not be able to wear a mask. This is to ensure their words are clear, not muffled by something covering their mouths.
~ Class locations may have additional requirements and/or restrictions. Please read the class description for additional information.
- Personal Hygiene: Please wash your hands (and face when possible) before coming into your appointment or the training classroom by using soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Wash your hands at every opportunity, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Personal Space: A 6-foot distance must be maintained between household groups including while seated.
- Frequently Touched Surfaces: We will ensure areas and items such as doorknobs, light switches, pens, financial equipment (tablet or phone), etc. are cleaned and disinfected before each class, after each transaction, and prior to your appointment.
Fingerprinting: This service includes being in close proximity to our fingerprint technician and touching of hands to obtain acceptable fingerprints. We will ensure the fingerprint scanner is disinfected, and the technician's gloves are changed or disinfected between each person being fingerprinted.
Due to sanitizing, there may be odors caused by the chemicals. We will try to air out the areas as best as we can to reduce these effects.
Hand sanitizer or similar disinfectant gels/wipes will be available for you to use
What Is The Corona Virus (COVID-19)?
COVID-19 is a droplet-borne virus spread mainly from person-to-person who are in close contact with one another through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

How To Reduce Becoming Infected Or Spreading The Virus:
