Due to continued 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 these communities, we will take every caution necessary to prevent the potential of carrying the virus during travel in order to protect each team member on the trip, the leaders we partner with and their teams, and the communities we will visit. Here are some precautions and updated information for all travelers:

  • Each traveler is required to present a negative Covid-19 test taken within the week leading up to the trip.
  • Each traveler will be required to take a Covid-19 test once in-country for their return to the U.S. within 1 day prior to departure, per current CDC guidelines.
  • Each traveler is recommended to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 and carry with them their proof of vaccination.
  • Each traveler will be required to carry with them a face covering. This will be worn at all times while visiting communities, as well as during international travel.
