This is a very valid concern. AFS’s top priority is the safety and well-being of our participants and host families, which is why all AFS participants will follow travel guidelines defined by their local governments and the local regulations in our country. Before students arrive, our office will inform you of all the protocols that were followed. We are committed to keeping an open dialogue with you and keeping you updated as we make decisions.
AFS closely monitors health and travel recommendations from the authorities, local education systems, and other factors to ensure AFS support and services can be delivered. AFS is establishing a robust system of criteria to resume a thoughtful and coordinated program delivery only where and when possible.
