VOLUNTEER SAFETY AND HEALTH
Your safety and health are our top priorities. In collaboration with partner agencies, schools, businesses, organizations and municipalities, United Way of Midland County is dedicated to providing the safest volunteer environment we can, along with safety plans for each event.
Flexibility. Our nonprofit partners may need to cancel volunteers shifts to limit the risk of exposure and community spread of COVID-19, while current requirements for sizes of groups and social distancing guidelines. Please check your email for any updates to volunteer shifts you may have signed up for, should there be a change.
Masks Required. While United Way of Midland County requires volunteers to adhere to the CDC guidelines and wear a mask in public, you will be volunteering and attending an event that is not staffed by United Way and might encounter people who choose not to wear a mask or face covering or medically cannot tolerate a mask or face covering. If, at any time at the event, you do not feel comfortable or safe, we respect your feelings and offer you the choice to leave the event. Volunteering is a personal decision, and we encourage all volunteers to only participate if they feel safe and comfortable.
Stay Home if Sick. If you (or someone you have been in close proximity with) have shown symptoms of illness (such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing, etc.) or fall within a demographic that is listed as higher risk by the CDC, we ask that you refrain from volunteering at this time.
Wash your hands. Please wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue.
Resources. For additional resources and preventative tips, please visit the CDC website.
If you have any questions, feel vulnerable to exposure or do not feel comfortable reporting to your scheduled volunteer shift, please notify Rene'e Urlaub at email@example.com or 989-631-3670 as soon as possible.
