COVID-19 Volunteer Guidelines

COVID-19 Volunteer Guidelines (as of March 14, 2022)

Thank you for volunteering at The River! To help ensure the health and safety of everyone, we are asking each volunteer to follow these guidelines:
  • Please DO NOT come to volunteer:
    • If you or anyone with whom you have regular contact has any of the COVID-19 symptoms: shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, muscle pain, nausea/vomiting, and new loss of taste or smell.
    • If you have had a positive test OR if you have not been cleared by medical professionals/Public Health to return to the public if you have had a positive COVID-19 test.
  • Masks are optional while volunteering with The River. If you are volunteering off-site (e.g., food recovery pickups), we ask that you please follow other businesses’ preferences on masks.
  • Please wear gloves while volunteering, and change them as often as needed. We have plenty on site.
  • After you sign-in, please wash your hands. Wash whenever needed throughout your shift, such as after using the bathroom, touching your face or hair, eating or drinking, or after taking out the garbage.
  • If you begin to experience any COVID-19 symptoms while volunteering at The River, please promptly report them to a staff member and leave immediately.

We know some of these guidelines may be cumbersome, or change your plans, and we thank you for your flexibility and support in keeping The River a healthy space for all to work, volunteer, and receive groceries.
