COVID-19 Policies

In order to maintain the health of our member families, volunteers, and staff, we are following the best-practices outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and the NJ Department State Office of Volunteerism.

 

Limiting Transmission: We ask that you refrain from volunteering and stay home if you...

  • Are feeling sick or someone in proximity to you is feeling sick. 

  • Experienced symptoms that could be COVID 19 related in the last 14 days.  

  • Been around anyone who has had COVID 19 in the last 14 days.  

  • Traveled outside the United States in the last 14 days.  

  • Been on a cruise or to the airport in the last 14 days 

 

Physical Distancing: While volunteering, all volunteers will follow physical distancing practices, by maintaining six-foot spacing between other individuals at all times. Staff and volunteers will work with TMP families or other individuals to ensure they maintain physical distancing from those of a different household.

 

When bundling diapers indoors, staff and volunteers are encouraged to remain in separate rooms whenever possible, and to keep indoor spaces well ventilated.

 

Personal Protective Equipment: All staff and volunteers will wear proper PPE at all times while volunteering, including a mask (covering the mouth and nose) and disposable gloves. Volunteers may also wear a face shield if desired. All PPE will be provided by TMP.

 

Handwashing: Staff and volunteers are asked to wash their hands/change gloves at frequent intervals, and to use proper hand-washing techniques (washing hands 20 seconds or more).

 

Sanitization: Before leaving a site, volunteers and staff will wipe down all surfaces and other high-touch areas (door handles, container bins, etc.) with a disinfectant solution.

 

These policies may be subject to change. Thank you for helping us keep everyone safe!
