Changes to Personal Protective Equipment
Fundraisers will be required to wear personal protective gear. As per Health Canada, non-medical masks or other face-coverings are recommended in instances where 6-foot physical distancing isn’t possible. Fundraisers will be equipped with face masks and will wear them when proper distancing isn’t possible, or at the donor’s request.
GFD canvassers will be equipped with custom COVID-19 related gear. This includes buttons, gloves, lanyards and hats. This gear will clearly speak to the necessity of maintaining a two-metre distance during F2F fundraising interactions.
Each fundraiser will be equipped with sanitizer and wipes. They will be instructed to use these sanitization materials before/after every interaction, cleaning their hands, tablets, and phones.
