Volunteer Waiver and COVID Protocols Acknowledgement

General Volunteer Waiver and COVID Acknowledgement

  • A valid email address is required in order to communicate with you important details of the event.
  • Additional Volunteers

    Each volunteer is required to register separately. We can only accommodate volunteers that have registered in advance and will not allow day of registration. This will ensure we do not go above state mandated limits for outdoor gatherings.
  • COVID-19 Event Protocol

    1. Stay home if you are sick. Individuals who arrive on-site with symptoms will be sent home. All volunteers will be asked on the day of the event if they have experienced any COVID symptoms, including a recent fever, or if they have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID in the last two weeks.
    2. All tools, such as shovels and rakes, will be disinfected before being handled by volunteers and tools will be used by the same person for the duration of the planting event.
    3. All volunteers, TreeMasters, staff, and participants must wear a mask covering their mouth and nose throughout the event (masks will be provided to any person who does not have one). Volunteers not in compliance with the mask requirement will be asked to leave the event.
    4. A distance of 6 feet must be maintained between participants at all times.
    5. All volunteers must wear freshly laundered garden gloves (gloves will be provided for those without them).
    6. Hand sanitizer or a hand-washing station will be available for volunteer use at the event site.
    7. Only designated staff/TreeMasters will be in charge disinfecting tools before storing them.
    8. All volunteer events will have a limit of 50 participants per planting zone per CDC guidelines for outdoor events.
    9. All volunteers will be required to register prior to the event. To ensure we comply with CDC guidelines for outdoor events, we will no longer accept day-of registrants.
