DOH is continuing to look for medical practitioners and caregivers who are willing to support health care and long term care facilities in the event of a surge this fall related to COVID-19. Those volunteers could be health practitioners licensed in another state who can practice in Washington if their other licenses are in good standing and they register with us. Or, they could be health practitioners licensed in Washington who want to volunteer to help meet demands in an emergency.
Right now, DOH are urgently looking for Certified Nursing Assistants, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Health Care Assistants. Interested volunteers can visit our website at www.doh.wa.gov/emergencyvolunteer to learn more about our emergency volunteer program or email email@example.com with specific questions.
