Transportation for medical appointments to resume as of September 1, 2020: Since the beginning of the pandemic, ERCV has been doing errands for people only if they do not involve having a passenger in the car. However, we are aware that transportation to doctors is important to our members, and we want to try to meet this need.


The ERCV Board has decided, therefore, that ERCV will begin offering transportation for essential medical appointments, with the following guidelines: 

  • Both the driver and the member will wear masks.
  • The member is to sit in the back seat, and car windows should be open when possible. 
  • The member and driver are not to have symptoms that might be contagious, such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms. 
  • ERCV will provide hand sanitizer to the driver.
  • Because the driver will not be able to wait in the doctor’s office, we will need two drivers for some service requests.
  • All volunteer drivers will be fully vaccinated, trained and vetted. 


All service requests depend on finding a volunteer willing to drive. Members are asked to request this service a week in advance when possible, but as always we will try to fill all requests. We continue to do shopping and run errands for our members. Please note that ERCV membership is complimentary through December 2021, and we are happy to accept new members. To inquire about becoming a member or to request a ride to a doctor's appointment please call 202-656-7322 or email us.
