***Coronoavirus COVID-19 creates a special concern for people who are considering travel. We understand and agree with this concern about the dangers of the virus and the uncertainty it creates. We assure you that we do not want to travel during a period of active concern. The trip leaders will be paying close attention to all U.S. State Department and CDC travel alerts about the virus. It is our hope that the virus will have run its course prior to the start of our trip (or that a vaccine will have been distributed). Please review our complete Coronoavirus COVID-19 statement for more information.
