COVID CONSENT: As with the transmission of any communicable disease like a cold or the flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19, also known as “Coronavirus,” at any time or any place. We will use universal precautions and “Social Distancing” as appropriate and recommended during the trip. “Social Distancing” nationwide has reduced the transmission of the Coronavirus. While we will take measures to provide social distancing through our trip, there could be instances where social distancing is not possible at all times. We recommend that you follow universal personal protection, such as good hand hygiene, maintaining adequate distance, and using face masks when mandated or when you feel appropriate. Masks will not be mandated to participate in the trip, but they could be mandated in towns or locations we will travel. Please note that while we will not mandate masks, they are encouraged by the government.
Despite our careful attention to maintaining social distancing when possible, good hand hygiene and use of personal barriers when required (i.e. in towns, stores, during food services) there is still a chance that you could be exposed to an illness during our trip, just as you might be at your gym, grocery store, or favorite restaurant.
