Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, local Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers have served more than 5,000 hours—more than 208 days—in Prince William County and the surrounding areas. MRC volunteers support COVID-19 testing sites and vaccine clinics, and educate the community on the best ways to prevent spreading and contracting the virus.
The MRC is a group of dedicated volunteers, who donate their time and talents to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year. MRC volunteers supplement existing emergency and public health resources.
Anyone can join the Medical Reserve Corps—no medical experience is needed. Volunteers receive free training and participate in drills and exercises to prepare for emergencies. Volunteers must be over 18 and pass a criminal background check.
