For COVID19 Response, Male Harvard Med Student Starting Final Year Requests Location Near Brigham and Women's Hosp

Hello, I am a 30s married South Asian male starting my final year at Harvard Medical School (HMS). I would like to volunteer at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) at 75 Francis St.

I am looking for a "donated" or extremely cheap accommodation near the hospital for the reasons explained below. Additionally, although I have included house sitting in hopes of giving something in return, extensive and/or time-consuming duties, particularly as the crisis escalates, would not be realistic.

Although I accept the risk to myself, I worry about increasing the risk to my wife as well as two unrelated individuals who share common spaces and are at higher risk for complications should they be exposed to COVID19. A separate location would allow me to volunteer without those concerns and proximity to BWH would allow me to avoid public transit (thereby lowering the risk to others) and allow me to work longer hours by avoiding a long commute.

I wish to prevent harm to others and also do not want to be liable, so the space should be completely separate without a shared bathroom. I will disinfect everything to the best of my ability before my departure, with no guarantee and accepting no liability. I would strongly recommend that you read guidelines for disinfection and subsequently clean and sanitize the space before it is inhabited by any other occupant.

If the space is shared with individuals who are young, healthy, and entirely willing to accept an increased risk and release me from any and all liability, then we may be able to work something out, although this would not be ideal.

I appreciate your time and consideration. Please contact me through this website for any questions or concerns. Thanks again.
