The program is intended to provide additional in-person support to Durham businesses and essential workers to make it easier for them to comply with local orders and public health practices, such as wearing face coverings, which can reduce risk of COVID-19 transmission. The 4-6 Ambassadors will engage local businesses and visit them in person to provide support and help them increase compliance with local policies.

The primary purpose of the Lead Ambassador position is to serve as the liaison between the Campaign administrative staff and the Ambassadors during the reopening phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lead Ambassador will actively coordinate and sustain productive collaborative work relationships both internally among the Ambassadors and among their targeted businesses. The Lead Ambassador will promote good will and effective health communication to Durham businesses, as employers and as community members, and provide community protective equipment and signage.

The Lead Ambassador’s role includes working closely with the Primary Investigator, Co-Investigator, and Project Manager on the project, as well as leading community engagement efforts related to the Campaign, and advising Ambassadors regarding scheduling, organization, distribution of supplies, and best practices as they enter and advise businesses.

The Ambassadors will visit businesses to listen and understand the needs and challenges they and essential workers face, to observe current practices, and to partner with establishment owners/managers to identify and remove barriers to compliance that can reduce risk of COVID-19 transmission among employees and customers.
