Dear Friend,

 

During this difficult time, the health and safety of our community is on everyone’s mind. People around the Commonwealth are working tirelessly to meet the needs of our community while also responding in creative ways to the exceptional circumstances presented by COVID-19.

This week, Governor Northam announced a statewide effort to recruit an additional 30,000 volunteers for the Virginia Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). The MRC is made up of teams of health professionals and community members, working to assist our healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19. They provide support for the immediate surge in our hospitals, long term care facilities and alternate care sites.

There are 13,000 volunteers currently registered with the MRC, many without medical training. A wide variety of talents will be needed in this fight, and Governor Northam has expressed a need for any Virginian with a willingness to serve. Non-medical volunteer positions that are needed to be filled include logistics, communication, coordination, technology and other support.

To become a Virginia Medical Reserve Corps volunteer, please visit http://www.vamrc.org. If you have any questions, please contact vamrc@vdh.virginia.gov.  

Thank you for your continued concern and care for your fellow Virginians. We must stand together during this public health crisis, and we look forward to working with you to ensure a healthy future for our families and neighbors.

 

Sincerely,
