Volunteers needed at Kitsap County Quarantine and Isolation site7/24/2020

Volunteers are needed to staff Kitsap County Quarantine and Isolation (Q&I) site for individuals who've been exposed to or tested positive for COVID-19, and lack safe alternatives for housing. The site is open to guests who choose to participate, are medically-stable and have been referred by a healthcare professional or public health official.

Q&I is maintained and managed by Kitsap County Department of Emergency Management as a key tool in the battle against the spread of COVID-19, providing a place for people who are wanting to protect other household members from infection, or experiencing homelessness.

Q&I site volunteers serve in an on-call capacity and fill shifts around the clock when the site is activated, working to provide basic needs to guests. These tasks include delivery of food along with health checks, checking in and checking out of referred individuals and daily reporting to emergency managers.

Volunteers are provided training on all appropriate PPE as well as on steps that minimize possible exposure. There is continuous on-site security, personal space and access to wi-fi; volunteers work in teams and site managers are also available to support volunteer staff.
