ALIVE! Quarantine Food Packer

ALIVE! Needs Help Preparing Groceries for COVID-19 Positive Households
Help ALIVE! prepare groceries for food-insecure households that have a COVID-19 positive patient. As the pandemic has taken its toll, the number of families who have tested positive has disproportionally affected low-income and poverty stricken families. This job is unrelated to ALIVE!'s other grocery packing positions.

Date: Weekdays M-F

Time: 11am - 1:30pm

Location: ALIVE! warehouse, 801 S. Payne St., Alexandria, VA 22314

You will be asked to take your temperature with a no-contact thermometer before you may begin work. Gloves will be provided. Close-toed shoes required. 

All volunteers must wear cloth face coverings. If you do not have one, ALIVE! will provide one for you.

Volunteers should fashion face coverings from household items or common materials, such as clean T-shirts or other clean cloths that can cover the nose and mouth area. Medical personal protective equipment such as N95 respirators or surgical masks are necessary for this purpose as these should be reserved for the appropriate personnel. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

* Only individuals registered to volunteer may show up on site in order to maintain physical distance rules. While we appreciate the overwhelming volunteer spirit during the health crisis, we cannot have additional people on site beyond those that are registered. Please do not bring friends or family to help.

DO NOT volunteer if:

- You exhibit any symptoms of a respiratory illness including fever, runny nose, sore throat, coughing or difficulty breathing now or in the past 24 hours.

- You have been to any places, and therefore exposed, where people have tested posted for COVID-19.

- You are at high risk of severe disease (including persons who are older than 65; have underlying heart disease or lung disease, diabetes, liver disease; are immunocompromised; on dialysis; or have severe obesity with BMI greater than 40).

- You have someone in your household who is at high risk.(including persons who are older than 65; have underlying heart disease or lung disease, diabetes, liver disease; are immunocompromised; on dialysis;, or have severe obesity with BMI greater than 40).
