Volunteers are welcome and appreciated even in the age of Covid-19. Provided social distancing is adhered to, risks of contracting or spreading the virus appear at this time to be very low in an outdoor environment. (Bromage, E., May 6, 2020)
We adhere to all government restrictions on crowd size for outdoor gatherings. We are lucky the hospital grounds are large enough for us to split up work crews if necessary.
If you want to avoid larger groups all together please state this on the contact form. We do have section leaders who may be working on days other than the published ones. Section leaders are identified below.
We do rely on you to maintain social distancing while volunteering. We understand this can be difficult when working together to plant trees. If you have a partner or someone within your bubble, most trees will be able to be planted with just two people so you could come with someone.
As we are outdoors wearing a mask is up to you. The Grey Bruce Public Health Unit states: "Wearing a mask or face covering is strongly recommended in situations where physical distancing is a challenge."
For surface contact, we urge you to wear your gardening gloves and not to touch your face or other parts of your body while wearing your gloves. You should wash your gloves upon returning home. And, of course, your hands.
