COVID-PROTECTION FOR PROJECTS 

(Updated May 26, 2021)


IMG 0135Our staff and leaders have been successfully doing projects, following COVID protocols, since May 2020.  Currently, due to lowered risk-levels, we are no longer requiring face coverings when outside.  However, masks/shields are still required indoors.

COVID PROTOCOLS FOR PROJECTS:

Healthy:
All personnel must be free of symptoms related to COVID (fever, coughing, diarrhea, nausea, loss of taste or smell), and must not have had known contact with anyone displaying such symptoms in the past 2-weeks.  

Masks:
Masks recommended by OHA are required when working indoors. 

Physical Distancing:
Work will be done by a single person when possible.
When the project takes more than a single person, appropriate caution should be taken.

Food & Drinks:
Food and drinks will be provided and distributed to volunteers by Catalyst leaders or other approved volunteers.  Food must be individually wrapped, and/or distributed by one selected person in order to minimize cross-contamination by volunteers.  Drinks should also be distributed by one selected person.

Sanitization: 
A detergent, disinfecting wipes, or spray, will be on the site of the project for sanitizing all items that are in frequent contact with multiple persons. This includes doorknobs, light switches, tools, toolbox tops, tools and any other surface that comes into frequent contact.

Purchases/Errands: 
When leaving the site to run errands of any kind, you must continue to follow the above protocols if returning to the site (wear mask, maintain physical distancing guidelines, wash/sanitize hands frequently, etc.).  All items brought to site, such as materials, food, etc., must be wiped-down prior to coming in contact with site personnel.
