Trained medical volunteers can offer their services by registering with a National VOAD member on www.NVOAD.org. Please not begin operations without contacting NVOAD first. You will be contacted once resources are matched with unmet needs.

CDC Guidance for Other Groups
CDC released age-adjusted rates of COVID-19-associated hospitalizations by race and ethnicity for the first time. This information is critical to identifying and addressing the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on the health of racial and ethnic minority populations.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a Guidance for Communities of Faith. For updates on the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) dedicated website. Also available in Spanish.
On its updated webpage the CDC says COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person. Some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus. Learn more and keep updated here.
This guidance is for individuals and families as they work with funeral directors, community and religious leaders, and others to plan and hold funeral services and visitations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This guidance is intended for people living together in close quarters, such as people who share a small apartment, or for people who live in the same household with large or extended families.
CDC updated their Guidance for Group Homes for Individuals with Disabilities. Group homes (GHs) for people with disabilities can vary in size from small to larger congregate settings. In congregate living settings, several factors may facilitate the introduction and spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Some of these factors include residents employed outside the home, residents who require close contact with staff or Direct Service Providers, residents who have trouble understanding information or practicing preventive measures, and residents in shared living spaces. In addition, GH residents who have underlying medical conditions may be at risk of serious illness with COVID-19.
This screening tool may be used to identify people with possible symptoms of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Although not every person who has symptoms will have COVID-19, conducting daily screenings consisting of a series of simple questions can help identify people who may need medical care or isolation.
