Project Mercy Baja Response to COVID-19

Updated January 20, 2022

We are happy to be able to bring back more US groups in 2022 and have some exciting new events planned for the rest of the year. We encourage all pertinent protocols such as mask wearing, hand sanitization and social distancing where possible and will advise recipient families in Mexico to also wear masks and socially distance from construction crews.

We are continuing our work within Mexico with our Mexican crew who have all been vaccinated.

Details on future builds are updated on our “Calendar” page and you may also contact Executive Director Paula Claussen at (858) 513-1847 for enquiries and more details.


WAIVERS: All participants must sign a waiver prior to construction. Please refer to the Waivers page (see menu on left) for details.

FACE MASKS AND HAND SANITIZER: Please bring your own face masks and sanitizer as required.

It is incumbent upon each volunteer and group leader to take personal responsibility and not come to the event if they feel sick or have been in contact with someone who is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19.

On the day of the event, you should not come, and should self-isolate at home until given direction otherwise from your healthcare provider, if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • You feel feverish of have a temperature of 100 degrees F or higher
  • Chills or cough or sore throat
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue or headache
  • Muscle or body aches
  • New loss of smell or taste
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If you have any of these signs or symptoms, do not come to the event and we urge you to seek medical attention.
