“We ask the volunteers to make sure that their travel is compatible with the most recent recommendations of health authorities with regards to the spread of the Coronavirus. In case you are traveling from a higher risk area, please check the health recommendations in your area and possibly get checked before joining one of our projects. We will take the necessary health precautions for our projects, but please contact your sending organization to get more information in case you have any concerns.”
