Health Protocols

COVID PROTOCOL UPDATE: In May 2023 the WHO (World Health Organization), the CDC (United States Centers for Disease Control), and other health organizations downgraded their alert level for COVID-19 and declared an end to the public health emergency. WINGS will follow their recommendations accordingly and adjust our policies. However, we will continue to follow commonsense guidelines to keep participants as safe and healthy as possible while on tour.

We have successfully run many tours in the last few years, in part because we have required COVID-19 vaccinations since they first became available. We will continue to enforce this policy on tours through the end of 2023. Starting in 2024, we will re-frame this requirement to be in line with our standard vaccination policy, which is that we will highly recommend keeping up to date on all relevant vaccinations for travel, including for COVID-19.

Effective immediately, WINGS will no longer require COVID-19 testing or immediate removal from a tour due to COVID. However, our leaders will still have the right to exercise on-tour protocol such as isolation or mask wearing on a case-by-case basis.
