Here are the details:
The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is inviting trusted messengers to inform Virginians about staying safe from COVID-19. Volunteer messengers will participate in photography/video shoots and lend their images, voices, and words to a statewide COVID-19 public awareness campaign. The campaign provides facts about COVID-19 vaccination, testing, mitigation strategies, and other ways to slow the spread of infection and illness and keep Virginia moving forward.
Trusted community members who are willing to share important COVID-19 information with fellow Virginians, including in English, Spanish, and Arabic languages.
Photo and video teams will travel to meet participants in their own communities. We are seeking participants in these areas:
- Eastern Virginia:
Dinwiddie, Essex, Gloucester, Greensville, King and Queen, Lancaster, King William, Mathews, Middlesex, Northumberland, Prince George, Richmond, Surry, Sussex, and Westmoreland counties
- Northwest Virginia:
Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah, and Warren counties
- Southern Central Virginia:
Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell, Franklin, Henry, and Patrick counties
- Southwest Virginia:

Photo and video shoots will take place the week of December 13-17. These shoots will be scheduled during the first two weeks of December.
