Frequently Asked Questions


Can people who have improved or recovered participate?

Those who pass the Canadian Consensus or Institute of Medicine criteria can participate. Following these criteria to the letter (as we will do) unfortunately means that those who are fully recovered will not be able to participate. This is an unfortunate but inevitable consequence of the need for us to fully comply with these criteria.
