Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19) March 27, 2020

GYC recognizes that coronavirus is a rapidly evolving situation; the health and safety of our delegates and program staff remains our top priority.  

 

GYC is monitoring the situation closely within each country we serve and we are in regular contact with our partners on the ground. Out of an abundance of caution, we have rescheduled our programs in the Netherlands and Colombia for late summer; however a final determination will be made by mid-June.  In the event a program must be canceled, all payments will be refunded.

 

As is our typical practice, we advise all delegates not to purchase airfare until the program is officially confirmed.  In addition, we strongly encourage delegates to consider purchasing a travel insurance plan which includes a “cancel for any reason” provision and may cover program payments.  

GYC will continue to monitor the situation though we urge you to review details on travel advisories for all locations at travel.state.gov.  We also urge you to review details of the travel notices issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for all locations at https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices

Please refer to the CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for the most current information regarding COVID-19 and measures you can take to protect yourself.

You may also direct any additional questions or concerns to Dechen Albero, Executive Director - dechen@globalyouthconnect.org.
