*COVID-19 VACCINATION UPDATE FOR VOLUNTEERS:*
Effective Monday, August 16, Citymeals on Wheels will require that all volunteers participating in Meal deliveries, Meal prep, Meal packing, etc… MUST provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon arrival at their volunteer assignment(s). This decision was made based on the increasing reports of the Delta variant within the United States.
Volunteers will present this proof to the staff at the center as part of their check-in/sign-in process. Volunteers unable to provide this proof cannot volunteer.
• provide one-time verification that they are fully vaccinated OR
• provide a weekly record of a negative PCR test as evidence that they are in compliance with the mandate.
As with current City requirements, proof of vaccination includes:
• Excelsior Pass
• NYC COVID Safe App (Android; iOS)
• CDC Vaccination Card
• Photo of CDC Vaccination Card
• NY Vaccination Record
If a volunteer opts not to take the vaccine, they will have to submit evidence of a weekly negative COVID-19 test. Any volunteer who is unable or unwilling to be vaccinated, including for medical reasons, will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test once every seven days. If a volunteer does not want to undergo weekly testing for any reason, they must get fully vaccinated.
A volunteer who has received at least one dose of a vaccine that requires two doses (ex. Moderna and Pfizer) will not need to submit the results of weekly testing as long as proof of their second dose is provided. If a volunteer does not submit proof of having received the second dose by such time, they will be subject to the weekly testing requirement until they do submit that proof.
