    You must receive immunization clearance prior to your scheduled start date. You will not be permitted to start work nor attend Orientation until you are cleared by Occupational Health.

  4. Proof of N95 Mask Fit Testing (if applicable)
  5. If you have been fit tested for an N95 mask in the last two years, please submit a photo or scan of your card indicating the type of mask you were fit tested for.

    If you require an N95 Mask Fit Test for your role and have not provided proof of a fit test within the last two years or if we do not have the specific mask you were fit tested for, you will be scheduled to attend a Mask Fit Testing session on your first day. Please watch for an email from [email protected].
