HHS, along with local non-profit and healthcare partners including Lake View Hospital and Medical Clinic, anticipate that volunteers will be needed for a variety of tasks including but not limited to everything from shopping and delivering groceries and medications to the doorstep of someone in isolation/quarantine to providing support to health care facilities.
