ALIVE! COVID Safety Guidelines

Staying Safe While Volunteering

  • All volunteers must be fully vaccinated prior to volunteering. Please ensure to bring your vaccination card to the work site. See the ALIVE! COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
  • All volunteers working indoors must wear a KN95 Mask- masks will be provided to all volunteers. 
  • Anyone handling food should wear gloves. 
  • Limit people inside to the minimum needed to carry out the work. 
  • Keep doors and windows open to increase airflow when possible. 
  • All volunteers must complete a health screening each day upon arrival and leave immediately if their temperature is above 100 and/or they feel unwell. 
  • Each volunteer is responsible for screening and recording their own temperature and answers on the health screening log at each location (office, warehouse, bus barn, and volunteer sites). 
  • Encourage people to stay home if they have experienced any symptoms of COVID and get tested as soon as possible before returning. 
  • Encourage all people to be vaccinated to the extent possible and realize vaccination does not protect completely against the spread of the omicron variant. 

Tips from CDC regarding workplace safety: 

  • Stay far enough away from other people so that you are not breathing in particles produced by them – generally at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths), although this approach by itself is not a guarantee that you will avoid infection, especially in enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces. Perform work tasks, hold meetings, and take breaks outdoors when possible. 
  • Practice good personal hygiene and wash your hands often. Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or the inside of your elbow, when you cough or sneeze, and do not spit. Monitor your health daily and be alert for COVID-19 symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, or shortness of breath). See CDC’s Daily Activities and Going Out and CDC’s Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People
  • Get tested regularly, especially in areas of substantial or high community transmission
