Masks: Latest COVID-19 Volunteer Policy Updates

We want to make sure we are in communication with you all about the efforts that we’re taking here at Care and Share Food Bank around COVID-19. We offer an essential service to the Southern Colorado community and we need volunteers to help us deliver that service to neighbors in need. Thank you for your support!

How to wear a mask

How to Wear a Cloth Face Covering
Cloth face coverings should:

  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Include multiple layers of fabric
  • Allow for breathing without restriction
  • Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

  • In following the guidance from Governor Polis, please wear a fabric mask any time you leave your home and inside our facilities. All Care and Share team members will be doing the same. The state has created a website with resources on how to create your own mask or masks to donate here.
  • Please respect social distancing guidelines. Those guidelines are intended to keep you safe and to comply with government public safety measures. Social distancing, also called “physical distancing,” means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing:
    • Stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) from other people
    • Do not gather in groups
    • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings

We continue to work with our partners to provide food throughout Southern Colorado, and we have a team in place monitoring and responding to the situation. Nutritious food is critical to maintain good health, so it’s more important than ever to reach our neighbors in need.
The safety and well-being of our staff, visitors, and volunteers is top priority. Because we rely on you so heavily, we’re taking several proactive measures.
