Health & Safety Guidelines

HandsOn is committed to serving needs while doing all that we can to ensure the safety of our volunteers, non-profit partners, and those they serve. Volunteers are encouraged to use a good sense of judgement and use the guidelines below as a reference when assessing whether or not to join a program:

  • Covid-19 RAT testing is optional. We encourage anyone experiencing fever or flu like symptoms to take a test and ask that you do not join a program if you have recently tested positive for Covid-19.
  • Face masks are optional, except in a handful of instances when HandsOn’s NGO partners have specified increased protection for the safety of their vulnerable service users. Please look out for this indicated in your service day email.

These guidelines may be updated from time to time and final reminder emails will indicate specific volunteer requirements associated with each program. We thank you for your continued support in ensuring the smooth running of our service programs.
