One of our teams only paid a total of $215 for twelve team members for eight days and it included full COVID coverage. Adam can be emailed (include dates of trip and team members names and ages) and he'll send a quote. Call him to make a credit card payment and he'll send all of the required paperwork and cards usually within 24 hours.
Q. What happens if someone from our team tests positive for COVID?
A. If the infected person is a minor, the parents/ guardian will be contacted and then given the option for the minor to quarantine with the missionary until a negative COVID test can be taken. It is recommended that an adult leader from the team also stay with the minor. The minor will have access to the internet so that they can maintain contact with their parents/ guardian.
Adults will be given the same option. In the case that their condition worsens,
the option will be given to be admitted to Hospital Clinica Biblica in San Jose. This is a private hospital and is comparable if not better than many hospitals in the US. https://www.clinicabiblica.com/en/
In both cases, the missionary will coordinate the follow up COVID test and airport drop off.
Q. If a student tests positive and they stay at the missionary's house, could
their parent fly down and stay with them.
A. Yes, no problem.
