It's hard for the rider especially when they are new to the services to accept something for nothing. Often I would say if they want to they can donate money directly to the organization -

With COVID, are there any general recommendations on asking about vaccination status? Or really with other illnesses like the flu or chicken pox?
Carolyn Swenson

I've had several volunteer drivers state that they only want to drive vaccinated individuals; in response I've said that we cannot share that information (we do not have a policy that riders must be vaccinated to use the service).

I had drivers meet quarterly - gave them a time to share experience and receive support along with training. In all made them feel connected to the organization.
