COVID Testing Site Volunteer Event

July 24, 2020 @ 11:30 pm - July 25, 2020 @ 7:30 am

Join us to help with the COVID-19 testing effort in Houston!

Choose between different volunteer opportunities for service at a COVID-19 testing site, including medical and support positions.

Medical Volunteers: Medical volunteers are needed to collect samples from individuals as they drive through the testing sites. Volunteers might have contact with those getting tested for possible COVID-19.

Support Volunteers at all testing sites: Will not have any contact with those getting tested for COVID-19. Volunteers will fill many roles to help the operations run smoothly and safely. Currently support volunteers are assisting with traffic control, scribes, checking to make sure those getting tested have necessary documentation (code and ID), and registration. They might also be helping in logistical duties such as cleaning and sanitizing common areas and acting as runners with delivering supplies to stations on site.
