Covid-19 Testing Center Volunteers

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90028

Date: 5/27/2020 Spots Remaining: 100

Description

Quick Overview: Volunteers will be providing widespread COVID-19 testing to the citizens of Los Angeles so we can understand the extent of our challenge and identify clusters of infection to help prevent further spread. These centers offer free Covid-19 testing to any members of the community who have been referred to us by their doctor.
Impact: Your efforts will assure the efficient flow of patients through the process and make sure patients can successfully self-administer the test. You will also relieve LA Fire Fighters, Paramedics and LA Police Officers from work in testing centers so they can be out in the community and serving those that will need their support in the coming days and weeks.
Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities:
- Assure the efficient flow of patients
- Volunteers work under the constant supervision of LAFD representative and follow strict safely protocols to assure the wellness of our team
- Volunteers do not actually perform the test, the tests are self-administered in a drive through format
- Volunteers are provided the appropriate gear in accordance the LAFD standards to assure our safety

You must have:
-Three days a week free
-No pre-existing medical conditions
-Patience with our response time because we are overwhelmed with requests (we may take a week or two to respond)

COVID-19 Precautions:
- Volunteers are directed to wear long pants, a long sleeve shirt, closed toed shoes (no slippers, etc.) and are provided with safety gear (mask, eye shield, gloves, and a gown) to wear while onsite.
