If you are young, healthy, and willing to volunteer, you may be wondering how to determine whether it is safe to do so. Before deciding to volunteer, here are some things to consider:
1. Have you or someone in your household traveled to a country on the CDC’s Level 3 watch list in the last 30 days? See the CDC’s guidelines for the most up-to-date list.
2. Have you been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19? See the CDC’s risk assessment guidance.
3. Do you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19? Symptoms often include a fever, dry cough, fatigue, or shortness of breath. See the CDC’s symptom information.
If you do decide to volunteer, please continue to take precautions such as washing hands regularly, wiping down all work surfaces with alcohol-based disinfectant, and maintaining at least six feet of distance between yourself and others at all times.
