The County of Santa Barbara is in search of community members who would like to utilize their wisdom and talents by volunteering for various COVID-19 related projects.  Volunteer assignments will be based on the skills, knowledge, and abilities of each individual volunteer and may include supporting emergency shelters, food distribution call centers, alternate (medical) care sites or other emerging needs.  

All volunteers are subject to a background check and will be required to provide their full name, date of birth, address, driver’s license or California Identification number, and social security number. All volunteers who are not currently employed as a government worker must also be sworn in by an approved Disaster Service Worker (DSW) appointing authority of the County of Santa Barbara.  Being sworn in as a DSW provides full coverage by the State of California Worker’s Compensation system. 

Community members interested in volunteering can sign up by completing the Volunteer Registration Form found on the Santa Barbara County Public Health portal at and emailing the completed form to [email protected]  or by contacting the Santa Barbara City CERT Spontaneous Volunteer Center, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at (805) 564-5782 to sign up over the telephone.

More specifics, please. During an epidemic more people would be willing to deliver to isolated seniors than walk through a tent-city to do the same. May not be PC, but betting your life requires a higher standard: facts & logic.
