A message from Team Rubicon about COVID-19

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Team Rubicon is built to serve, and in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve launched the #NeighborsHelpingNeighbors initiative to meet the needs of our communities through safe individual acts of service.

During this time of the COVID-19 crisis, many people are unable to access, and afford, their most basic needs, including food. Team Rubicon and Patient Advocate Foundation have partnered to provide emergency food assistance to those who have cancer, Multiple Sclerosis or Rheumatoid Arthritis, and have been affected by COVID-19. 

The COVID-19 Emergency Food Assistance Program is powered by the generous support of Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation.

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY?

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider and reduce physical proximity to others. 
 
Do not engage in Team Rubicon in-person events if you’re experiencing these symptoms. 

All Team Rubicon events present a risk, especially those in which Greyshirts share billeting, food preparation areas, and hygiene areas. 

Older adults (65+) and people who have severe underlying medical conditions seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. If you fall into these categories, we ask that you do your part by observing CDC precautions and participating in online opportunities. 

 We strongly encourage all Greyshirts to follow the CDC’s preventative measures to reduce your risk and protect your community. 

HOW IS TEAM RUBICON RESPONDING TO COVID-19?

There is no playbook for this situation, but action is the only option.

Team Rubicon is currently serving in communities across the country providing assistance such as delivery service for food-insecure populations, coordination and logistics support for those in temporary quarantine, as well as individual volunteers safely helping their neighbors.

These operations will continue to evolve as we navigate a new normal.
