Is anyone requiring volunteers to show proof of vaccination? We haven't been told we should, however we do have volunteers asking if other volunteers are vaccinated. Our staff have to show proof, however there isn't a mandate yet that volunteers need to. It would be great to hear what others are doing.

We are having people sign a form that they are either vaccinated or being tested weekly and that they will not show up for volunteer shifts if they aren't feeling well. Here's what our county provided.

Hi Alison, I'm at The Huntington Library in San Marino, CA, and we are requiring volunteers to show proof of vaccination. We are collecting the info via an online attestation and then asking them to show their vaccination card to prove their status. Those who are unvaccinated as of today will not be able to volunteer on site until they are vaccinated. We are also allowing medical and religious exemptions for volunteers by the same process used for staff (done through HR). We are not collecting copies of their vaccine cards however. While vaccination status does not fall under HIPPA protected information, we are still treating their information sensitively. Please feel free to reach out if you have more questions since we are in the same county. Best wishes,
