Updates on COVID-19

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and risks, we will be taking several precautions to ensure the safety of every traveler and the communities we will visit. While cases are lower in the countries we will visit, we will take every caution necessary to prevent the potential of carrying the virus during travel. Here are some precautins that will be required of all travelers:

  • Each traveler will be required to obtain a negative Covid-19 test 3-5 days before travel
  • Once a negative test is obtained, each traveler will be asked to self quarantine at home as much as possible
  • Each traveler will be required to carry with them a face covering. This will be worn at all times while visiting with leaders and their communities, as well as during international travel
