As we all know Corona virus is spreading all over the world.
Here we list some useful resources for volunteers to get information on Corona virus on official channels and we propose a disclaimer on COVID-19 to be inserted in IVS organisations websites.
Due to Corona virus emergency, it might be a good idea for all IVS organisations to put a CORONA VIRUS DISCLAIMER on their web site. By the inspiration provided by SCI network, a template disclaimer was developed and you can find it here, for your consideration:
We ask all volunteers to make sure that their travel is compatible with the most recent recommendations of health authorities with regards to the spread of the Coronavirus. In case you are travelling from, or recently travelled through a higher risk area, please check the health recommendations of the country, where the project takes place, as restrictions may apply (e.g. ban, quarantine, isolation). We will also gladly be at your assistance if cannot find such information yourself. We will take the necessary health precautions for our projects. Please contact us to get more information in case you have any concerns or questions.
