San Geronimo Valley Community Center Volunteer Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in volunteering. The Coronavirus pandemic is a very unique situation. Unlike other disasters where volunteers have been key in supporting our community, this disaster requires us to stay home and limit contact and congregations of large groups. The key in managing the COVID-19 pandemic is social distancing and at the Community Center, we will be diligently enforcing social distancing practices and screening volunteers to make sure that we are doing our part in flattening the curve. There may be a time that we need volunteers but it is important that you do not show up to volunteer without permission from a Community Center staff person. We will be organizing volunteerings and keeping a strict schedule to ensure safe practices.
To avoid inundating our team with offers to volunteer, please first use the self-screening tool to find out if you are eligible.
Volunteer Self Screening
- Are you 65 years of age or older?
- Do you live with someone who is 65 years of age or older?
- Do any of the following apply to you or someone you live with: Heart disease, asthma, diabetes, undergoing treatment for cancer, respiratory/lung disease, immuno-supressed or weakened immune system.
- Are you sick or have you been sick in the last 14 days?
- Have you been around anyone who is sick or has been sick in the last 14 days?
- Have you been in contact with anyone who has been tested and diagnosed with Covid-19?
- Have you traveled within the last 14 days?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, it is not safe for you to volunteer at this time.
If you answered NO to all of these questions, please contact Nicole Ramirez at firstname.lastname@example.org. Know that we are limiting volunteers and providing specific work shifts, again, please do not show up unannounced and without permission. We may not be able to accommodate all volunteers. Thank you for your desire to support!
Below is additional information and opportunities to volunteer in the County and in the community! Again, please self-screen before choosing to volunteer!
