• Per Oregon’s COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for Teachers and School Staff, all volunteers will be required to provide proof of vaccination before volunteering in a PPS school or facility. 

    • Volunteers who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may only be assigned to non-contact volunteer activities. They may not volunteer directly with students or be in a PPS school or facility where they would have direct or indirect contact with students. 

    • Volunteering in schools will be very limited in 2021-22. Only essential volunteers will be permitted to volunteer in PPS schools, as determined by the school administrator. 

    Volunteers will be required to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19. Their record must include the name of the person vaccinated, type of vaccine provided, date or dates given, and the name/location of the health care provider or site where the vaccine was administered.

    Acceptable forms of documentation required to be uploaded as part of the volunteer application include:

    • a copy of a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (issued by the Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control & Prevention or WHO Yellow Card); OR
    • a photo, or scanned copy of the Vaccination Record Card as a separate document; OR
    • Physical or digital documentation of the COVID-19 vaccination from a health care provider.

    As a reminder, “fully vaccinated” means, per the CDC, you are considered fully vaccinated: 2 weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose series(e.g. Pfizer,Moderna) or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, (e.g. Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine).
