WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND …
We appreciate our community’s commitment to helping during the Coronavirus outbreak, but please keep in mind:
Honor the public health recommendations. If you’re delivering supplies or food to a family or organization, follow the suggestion of social distancing – ring the doorbell and move away from the door, text them beforehand, etc.
Look for opportunities that are limited in size. Organizations know how important of a role they play in minimizing the spread of the disease. If you are committed to volunteering with others, look for a group size of 10 or less.
Stay home when you are sick. Of course, you should be doing all of the things to stay safe – hand washing, limiting exposure, etc. If you are not feeling well, please stay home! Staying home when not feeling well, allows those volunteering to stay safe from exposure of the virus.
