Seeking Staff Volunteers for Employee/Student COVID Testing

Dear Staff and Faculty,

Yesterday you received communication regarding upcoming COVID-19 testing for faculty, staff and contractors on January 15, 2021 and January 19, 2021.

For these employee clinics, as well as for student testing clinics through the semester, it is essential that we have a pool of employee volunteers to assist with the clinics. Please consider volunteering. Volunteers will receive the training and support necessary so that they can safely serve our community (please be aware that only asymptomatic individuals will be tested in these clinics). Volunteers will be asked to sign up for two-hour shifts and will assist with traffic flow, paperwork, etc. All volunteers will also be tested. If you would like to volunteer to help with testing either this month or later this spring, please use this Volunteer Signup Form.

All volunteers will be required to attend an in-person training session on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. Hourly employees will be paid for volunteer time and should receive permission from their supervisor prior to volunteering.

Please direct any questions about the January testing requirement or program Kris Codron in HR at kcodron@lclark.edu.
