Outreach Testing Team

Thanks so much for your interest in joining the Outreach Testing Team! These specialized events operate in a number of different environments to make testing as accessible as possible to all community members.

Please review the information below in full before signing up for outreach testing.

When using the sign-up page below, please enter your full name, email address, and phone number after selecting a volunteer spot. After you sign up for your first outreach testing spot, one of our volunteer coordinators will reach out to you by phone to discuss some additional details.

Our times for testing at many locations is quite limited. All volunteer positions for this program are incredibly important to ensure a smooth operation! If you can't make it to a spot you selected, please contact us as soon as possible so we can try to arrange coverage.

Finally, please note that everyone on-site for outreach testing must wear closed-toe shoes and long pants.

If you have any questions about outreach testing, please don't hesitate to send us a message!

Thank you for helping keep Nova Scotia COVID safe!

Volunteer Screening & Waiver

Volunteers must pass daily self-screening for COVID-19 and agree to the terms of our Commitment to Confidentiality detailed below. Please read the following section in full before volunteering. This document is presented to all volunteers when they sign up for their first volunteer spot on SignUp.com.

Daily Testing

As of Dec. 20, 2021, all volunteers are asked to complete a rapid test on the day of any volunteer activity. Volunteers are welcome to use a rapid test at home before arriving on-site, or supplies will be available for testing on arrival. If you are unable to complete a test at home in advance, we ask that you arrive 15 minutes early for your spot.

Proof of Vaccination

As of Nov. 1, 2021, all volunteers are required to show proof of full vaccination for COVID-19 to the site lead when checking in for their volunteer spot. Anyone who is not eligible to be vaccinated may not volunteer for this program.

COVID-19 Daily Self-Screening
