The Student Adventures operational team has been following the spread of the coronavirus known as COVID-19. At this time, the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recommended against travel to mainland China, South Korea, Iran, and most of Europe. We are monitoring and following the travel recommendations set forth by the CDC and WHO along with the U.S Department of State.
For the health and safety of our staff, we will be operating with limited in-office staff for the foreseeable future. If you are a participant with questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as many of our staff will be responding to emails remotely. If you are a teacher/sponsor and have questions about your trip, please contact your Tour Consultant directly. We appreciate your patience as we navigate through this difficult situation.
As of today, any trips after August 30, 2020 are set to proceed as originally scheduled. Student Adventures recognizes, however, that circumstances are changing rapidly. If your school – or Government guidelines – require that the trip not proceed as scheduled, we will communicate any changes as soon as possible.
We are working with schools where the school administration or the school board has put restrictions on travel on a case-by-case basis to adjust plans for future travel. Should the CDC recommend avoiding nonessential travel to a destination, alternative itineraries have been created, and the tour destination or date will be moved.
In the meantime, the CDC has released a list of preventative measures anyone can take to avoid contracting and spreading illness:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use alcohol-based sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
