County officials say the Loudoun Medical Reserve Corps is calling for more volunteers who will play a role in protecting the community’s health during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. There is a need for both medical and non-medical personnel, according to a Monday announcement.

A county statement says medical professionals of all types are needed, including doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, emergency medical technicians, dentists and veterinarians. Non-medical volunteers can be used for language translation, logistics support, staffing the information line, performing clinical roles and other non-medical functions.

“Loudoun Medical Reserve Corps volunteers have been working every day, seven days a week for the last five months. With society reopening and many of these folks now going back to work, the more people who can volunteer, whether they’re medical or non-medical, the better,” Loudoun County Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend said in a prepared statement.

County officials estimate that since the pandemic began, Loudoun MRC personnel have volunteered more than 7,400 hours, providing cost savings to the county of more than $200,000.

More information about the MRC, including an online registration form, can be found at Loudoun.gov/mrc. More information about the COVID-19 pandemic can be found at Loudoun.gov/coronavirus.

What pandemic? Our President says everything is A-ok and this is just a trick by those crazy liberals, number are inflated and those that have died are from other causes......Right? Right?

Simply showing the lies that can kill people.

You don't seem to realize that if the corp was for help during the pandemic that it relates to there being a pandemic. therefore on topic[beam]

Not only that but I watch Fox News religiously. Yes, I'm an Evangelical Christian which means I don't really care much about what Jesus said but I do like getting my kind of people on the Supreme Court. Anyway, I don't miss a segment and I can te ll you, people are making this stuff up. The virus is no worse than smoking a cigarette as you walk into traffic. Lots of people die that way every day. What the heck is the big deal? It's all politics and people are just trying to take our President down. Stay strong America and look on our dear leader with the doe-eyes that VP Mike Pence has shown us work wonders on our leader's feelings as he works day and night on America's problems.

MAGA--similar to my comments about CindyLou, how does this sarcastic commentary link to the recruitment of more Medical Reserve Corp people? There is ZERO correlation. [offtopic]

amerigirl

The connection is that they need the Corp for the pandemic, the one trump says doesn't exist so yeah it has a lot to do with it

Voltaire

CindyLou--and how does this relate to the article's subject about the recruiting more volunteers for the Medical Reserve Corps? The answer is that it doesn't. [offtopic]
