In March, the CDC changed the way it measures community COVID-19 risk. We ask that volunteers practice best judgment regarding personal and community health and safety when volunteering. Schools and other volunteer sites may have different preferences regarding volunteers and visitors wearing masks. United Way of Salt Lake continues to recommend that volunteers wear a mask when they cannot socially distance and highly encourages all volunteers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To learn more about vaccines, visit Utah 211’s Coronavirus Information Page.
