Get Involved...  

Thank you for searching our page because you care about others who are impacted by COVID-19 and you want to help.  

We are proud of Hanover’s volunteer spirit. One of the best services that each of us can provide to our community is practicing guidelines set by the CDC. Remember even those who are feeling well may unknowingly expose others.

As you or your organization prepares and makes decisions regarding engaging volunteers, or if you are considering taking part in organization-led volunteer projects during this time, we ask that you observe the precautions outlined in the Healthy Volunteers Guidelines.

  • Please do not volunteer if you are sick or feeling unwell.

  • Please do not volunteer if you have been near someone who is sick.

  • Please do not volunteer if you have traveled abroad or to any highly impacted part of the US.

  • Please do not volunteer if you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19.

  • Please be advised that staff may ask you to leave the volunteer project if you show signs of illness.

  • Please do not shake hands or have physical contact with anyone if you are attending a volunteer project.

  • We will be updating COVID-19 related volunteer opportunity suggestions and resources on Hanover County’s COVID-19 webpage
