  • COVID-19 Volunteer Waiver and Policies - Onsite Opportunities

    Thank you for offering to volunteer at Building One Community(B1C)!

    If you are NOT yet registered with us as a volunteer, please submit your registration here.

    During this unprecedented time, we are taking extreme safety precautions for any onsite opportunities. We are following all CDC guidelines for staff and volunteers in our facility. Our entire staff will be wearing facial masks and our schedule has been staggered to allow a limited number of people in the center at any one time. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival for your shift.  Please do not come early and bring your own facial mask (one can be provided if needed).

    If you don’t feel comfortable volunteering onsite, you can still continue to volunteer remotely! Please email [email protected] for more information.

    You can volunteer at our physical facility if:

    • You are healthy and not showing any signs of illness including fever, cough, tightness of the chest.
    • Any of your family members or people you have been in contact with are healthy and not showing any signs of illness or are being tested for the coronavirus.

    If you contract COVID-19, you may require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help you breathe. Possible long-term consequences include permanent impairment and even death.

    If you are 65 years of age or older and/or have a chronic health condition, including but not limited to chronic lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or a weakened immune system, you are considered to be at higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19. Please go to the CDC website HERE to learn more about the risks.

    B1C Statement Regarding Covid-19 Protocols:

    In accordance with public health guidance, B1C strongly encourages the community to receive an FDA-approved Covid-19 vaccine, unless advised otherwise by a health care provider.
    We are not currently mandating Covid-19 vaccination for staff, volunteers, or program participants. To ensure everyone's safety, we are still requiring that staff and visitors wear masks indoors at B1C and follow social distancing when possible. Please refrain from asking others about their vaccination status or plans, as some people might have medical considerations that they don't wish to share.
