Country Status Board: Travel Updates & Closures
As the Coronavirus pandemic continues into 2021, the Global Leadership Adventures Risk Management Team has decided to build a status board that rates our level of confidence in the likelihood of program operations in particular destinations by country. These ratings are in fluctuation as new information becomes available, and will be updated on the first of every month.
For these ratings, the GLA Risk Management Team considers the local status of COVID-19, as well as health infrastructure, testing facilities and group gathering restrictions that may be in place. We investigate flight availability and border restrictions. We look at the US State Department and CDC recommendations, and we connect often with our in-country partners. We have been assessing this information since the beginning of COVID, and therefore are making our best possible projections based off of both the long term trends that we have been watching, as well as the current status of each location.
There are three status levels represented in the program status board below:
- LIKELY (CONFIDENT)
- TOO SOON TO TELL (NEUTRAL)
- PLANNED FOR 2022 (CLOSED FOR 2021)
When a program destination is marked as likely (confident), it means that the GLA Risk Management Team has rated any/all programs located in this country, state or region as having a higher degree of likelihood of operating during Summer 2021. Session dates may still shift slightly, and program cancellation may still occur in the event of future changes.
When a program destination is marked as too soon to tell (neutral), it means that the GLA Risk Management Team has reviewed the latest data and details and has determined that there is not enough information yet to make a call as to whether programs in this country, state or region will operate or not in 2021. These programs are still open for enrollment for travel in 2021, but we will coordinate with students and their families should the program dates need to be modified.
When a program destination is marked as planned for 2022 (closed for 2021), it means that the GLA Risk Management Team has determined that program operations within that particular country, state or region are not possible for the current calendar year. However, our team does intend to run programs in this location during the 2022 season.
As you review the Country Status Board below, please consider the following:
- When there are different defined regions within a single country, we may break out individual locations (ex. by state in the USA or by island in Indonesia)
- For international destinations, if you click on the linked text, you’ll be referred to the US State Department’s latest COVID-19 information and advisories page
- Particular programs and session dates for a program may be independently rated as “likely” to operate in Summer 2021 on the GLA Enrollment Portal; however, please be advised the below ratings are defined at the state or regional level
