Construction/Volunteer Phasing Plan:
Phase one (June 11):
1-2 members of homebuyer families who are completing sweat equity hours on their homes will be invited back to site.
Phase two (July 9):
Force of Habitat, our specially-trained skilled group of volunteers, will be invited back onto site. Six or fewer people will be working on each home at one time.
Phase three (timing TBD):
Select volunteers from sponsor and faith groups will be invited back onto site, with no more than 10 people working on each site, including staff.
We have always prioritized safety at Habitat Wake, and this is true now more than ever. Volunteers who are not complying with our safety protocols will be asked to leave.
No one should come to site if they display any symptoms related to COVID-19 in the last 24-48 hours; including, but not limited to cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat, body aches, chills, muscle pain, headaches, new loss of taste or smell or fever.
We are only accepting volunteers who are 18 or older.
Volunteers should bring a mask to site and wear while they are indoors (outdoor mask wearing is optional as long as proper social distancing measures are being taken).
Volunteers who are invited back to site MUST register so that we can control the flow of people and know how many volunteers are working on each home. Please do not show up to site without registering.
To insure proper social distancing, shift and slot availability will be limited.
Staff will issue tools to each person on site to avoid sharing, and all tools will be sanitized after use. Force of Habitat may bring their own tools and PPE.
There will be no shared water coolers or lunches. Individual water bottles will be provided on each site.
Volunteers over the age of 65 or with pre-existing conditions are encouraged not to volunteer.
There will be hand washing and sanitizing stations at each worksite.
