How can I help New Jersey respond to the COVID-19 pandemic? How can I volunteer my time or skills?

Last Updated: 07/03/2020

Our first responders and health care workers are saving lives every day -- so can you.

Your family, your friends, your neighbors -- their lives are literally in your hands.

Here's how you can do your part and save lives:

EVERYONE

  • Get Tested – Testing is now available to everyone in New Jersey. You could have COVID-19 and not even know it. Protect yourself and save the lives of your loved ones by getting tested – especially if you have symptoms, have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, are an essential worker, were recently in a large crowd where social distancing was hard to maintain, or recently travelled to an area or a state with high COVID-19 infection rates. Learn how and where to get tested at covid19.nj.gov/testing
  • Answer The Phone When A Contact Tracer Calls – You've been called because you either tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has – so it's critical you answer the phone. Contact tracers are calling with life-saving information that will keep you, your loved ones, and your community safe and healthy. Learn how contact tracing saves lives at covid19.nj.gov/testandtrace
  • Wear a Mask - Always wear a mask over your nose and mouth in public spaces, and anywhere that you cannot keep 6 feet of distance from another person.
  • Keep a Social Distance - Keep six feet between yourself and others whenever possible and avoid crowded areas.
  • Volunteer in your community, by registering here.
  • Become a contact tracer, by registering here.
  • Donate PPE (personal protective equipment) like N95 respirators, face shields, and other equipment, by visiting covid19.nj.gov/ppedonations
