COVID-19 Policy
Volunteers are vital to CAAMFest, and we greatly appreciates the time and energy volunteers devote to our projects and programs. As a volunteer, you should understand and agree to the information in the following terms before you perform any work in a venue for CAAMFest40.

  • We are requiring that volunteers be up to date with their vaccinations. This means that you've received all doses in the primary series and one booster when eligible. Please check the CDC guidelines here on what this entails. We will be checking your vaccination status before your first shift.
  • We will require that volunteers wear masks while performing any tasks that require interaction and interfacing with the public and community for CAAMFest40.

Thank you for helping us create a safer environment for our community.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: Requirements can shift based on the City of San Francisco and CDC guidelines. We encourage our volunteers to stay up to date on possible changes.
"CAAMFest40 is a celebration of not only listening, watching, relating, and enjoying such voices, but, moreover, I see it as the community statement—showing the world what it is like to be Asian & Asian American"
