COVID-19 Response


This is a list of completely optional ways that you might consider helping your community during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes ways to help remotely and in-person. Participation in any and all opportunities is voluntary and the decision to participate should be made with prudence and consideration of your health and safety as well as the health and safety of others. Benedictine College has not assessed the current risks - health or otherwise - of participating in any general or specific idea listed on this page. Participation is completely at your own risk. This page is not meant to give any kind of medical advice. See the CDC Website for the most recent notifications, warnings, guidelines, and recommendations before volunteering.

*Maintain social distancing when volunteering!!!* According to the CDC, social distancing means remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.

Wondering if you should register to volunteer in person or not? Based on information from the CDC, consider the following questions:

  1. Have you or someone in your household traveled in the last 30 days? See the CDC’s website for the most up-to-date travel guidelines.
  2. Have you been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19? See the CDC’s website for guidance on this matter. 
  3. Do you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19? Symptoms can include a fever, cough or shortness of breath. See the CDC’s symptom information.

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, do not register for an in-person volunteering opportunity. There may be additional reasons besides these that would make it prudent for an individual to not volunteer in person.
