The health and safety of our volunteers remains a top priority. In partnership with the city's Volunteer Coordination Task Force, we are actively enforcing the following safety requirements on our projects:
If any of the following conditions apply to you, stay home and do not sign up to volunteer:
You are sick or recently tested positive for COVID-19, even if you are vaccinated against COVID-19.
You are required to quarantine due to a recent COVID-19 exposure.
There is still community transmission of COVID-19. If you are not vaccinated against COVID-19 and are 65 years of age or older or have an underlying health condition that increases your risk of severe COVID-19 illness and decide to volunteer, make sure you wear a face covering and practice physical distancing at all times. Consider volunteering in well-ventilated, non-crowded places, or ideally outdoors, to further reduce your risk of COVID-19 exposure.
If you feel sick or recently tested positive for COVID-19, do not volunteer outside the home, even if you have been vaccinated.
Wear a face covering on projects and maintain physical distancing while volunteering.
Practice healthy hand hygiene, including washing hands often with soap and water and using hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Hand hygiene is good public health practice whether or not you have been vaccinated.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when sneezing or coughing. Do not use your hands.
