Our Promise To You
Although we are continuing with our classes as our course schedule outlines, we are prepared to incorporate a balance of online and in-person study if necessary.
The largest adjustment to our program has been the wait times for externships. Many medical labs are limiting the amount of bodies they allow in their facilities which has forced some of our partnering externship sites to put a hold on accepting any new students.
If you have a desire to enter the world of Phlebotomy, we encourage you to enroll and proceed with whichever course start date works best for you as circumstances can change overnight. It would be nice to have your coursework and National Exam behind you when the dust settles so you can proceed on your path to becoming a fully licensed phlebotomist.
1. Personal Heath
- Watch for symptoms. Pay attention to how your body is feeling and STAY HOME if you feel you have any symptoms. Per the CDC, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to COVID-19. The virus can be spread from person to person when respiratory droplets are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
- Wash your hand frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place, blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available , use a hand sanitzer that contains at least 60% alcohol and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with those who are sick. Maintain a distance of 6 feet with those within your household who may be sick or show symptoms of COVID-19.
- Distance yourself from others outside your home a minimum of 6 feet. Avoid public places where distancing is not possible.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover while in attendance during classes. The cloth covering is meant to protect other people in case you are infected. Mask are required at Cali Phlebotomy School. Mask are not a substitute for social distancing.

If any person(s) have temperature above 99 degrees they will need to complete a secondary screening and a secondary temperature reading. Should the temperature reading remain above 99 degrees, the student will be able to attend class on that day. A make up class will be available per your student handbook guidelines.
