We’re working hard to keep you working! Below are important resources for taking precautions as an essential worker.

Currently, the federal government is not requiring that individuals get vaccinated for the Coronavirus. However, a state or local government, or employer, may require essential employees to be vaccinated in order to continue working on-site.

Essential workers should be offered vaccination in Phase 1b or 1c of the nationwide program. These options may include a workplace vaccination program, your personal healthcare provider’s office, a pharmacy, your local health department, or vaccination sites set up by your state or local government or local health systems.

Please note: Instawork does not require that you get vaccinated to book gigs but highly encourages seeking vaccination as a safety precaution and best practice.
