COVID-19 Considerations

In order to ensure the health and safety of all Field Survey Trip participants and the communities we will be visiting, all attendees who are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19 either need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to participation or comply with additional safety and testing measures in order to participate. Full vaccination is 14 days past the final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, such as a two-dose vaccine (e.g., Pfizer, Moderna) or a one-dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson). It is the responsibility of each participant to ensure they understand and are able to comply with all entry and local requirements of the host country and vendor. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Please see the COVID Considerations section of the Trips Policies page for more information.
