Covid-19 Protocol

This event requires either a proof of vaccination, or proof of a negative PCR test within 7 days of the event. These requirements must be provided on the day of the event. Reminders will be sent out prior to each volunteer event. As a measure to protect your health information, Solana Center will NOT keep any records of your vaccination or test status.

If you’re unable to provide documentation for either proof of vaccination or proof of a negative PCR test, we ask that you do not sign up to volunteer at those events that require them. We have several other opportunities that our volunteer coordinator would be more than happy to connect you to.

For the time being, volunteers must be 12 years or older. Please note that volunteers younger than 18 will still need to volunteer with their parent/caregiver.
