Reconnect Earth is committed to the safety of our participants and staff. To minimize the risk from the spread of COVID-19 on this summer’s trips, we are taking the following precautions:
-All trip trip participants are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to the trip if you are able. Staff are required to have been vaccinated. Learn more about how to get vaccinated here.
-Participants assisting with the preparation of group meals must be fully vaccinated.
-Participants sharing a tent will only be paired with tent mates who are fully vaccinated.
We also ask that you not come on a trip if you experience at least two of following symptoms (not attributable to other causes) within five days of the start date:
- Dry cough (not coughing up phlegm or other liquids).
- Congestion/runny nose not related to allergies.
- Abnormal significant fatigue.
- Sore throat (lasting longer than 24 hours).
- Muscle or body aches not associated with exercise.
- Nausea or vomiting.
- Shortness of breath while at rest.
- Persistent new diarrhea (lasting longer than 24 hours).
- New loss of taste or smell.
If you have had any of the above symptoms within five days or less of your trip start date, please send us a doctor’s note or other documentation and we will provide a full tuition refund.
At this time, we do not anticipate participants needing to wear masks during most of the time we are in the field together. However, please bring a mask in case of circumstances where wearing one might be necessary.
