Volunteers will greet guests at the Comfort House and ensure that guests have access to their rooms, and understand the policies for staying at the house. All guests are out-of-town patients receiving outpatient care in the Augusta area, or are a caregiver of a qualified patient at a local hospital. No physical contact with guests is required and social distancing is expected at all times, however the volunteer will need to provide the guest with keys to their room and a short tour of the facility. Check-ins are by appointment only from 1pm-8pm, so volunteers would only need to support an agreed upon appointment time.
