  • Safety: All participants must sign an additional COVID-19 volunteer waiver BEFORE EVENT DAY (this will be sent in an info email 1-4 days before the event). All volunteers must bring to their volunteer shift the day of the event either: proof of vaccination, either through your issued vaccination card or through California’s Digital Covid-19 Vaccine Record, or proof of a negative PCR test (only PCR tests will be accepted) taken within 7 days of the event.
