We continue to rely on the extensive network of health and safety resources offered by our parent company WorldStrides. This network includes the exclusive Doctors on Call program and our 24/7 call center. We're following the evolution of the situation in real time and have committed to respect the protocols detailed below. (The measures related to COVID-19 are currently valid until the end of June 2022. We reserve the rights to readjust these as the situation progresses).
If you are flying to your destination, each airline we work with has slightly different processes and protocols to respond to COVID-19. We recommend you check the website of your airline for the most up-to-date information.
Airlines are deep cleaning between flights, requiring face coverings, and some are reducing the number of passengers on each plane.

Yes. Jumpstreet will provide disposable masks for all participants on our trips, as well as our employees. Wearing a mask will be required in confined spaces and when social distancing is not possible.
You must follow local, national, provincial/state, or other sanitary measures, including wearing a mask, especially on planes and while visiting cultural attractions.
Daily temperature checks by the group chaperone are no longer required, but temperature checks may be carried out at airports and at the entrance of certain sites and attractions.
We may make adjustments to the itineraries to limit contact between participants and those outside the group and to provide more flexibility to meet COVID-19 requirements. These changes could include separating groups or reducing the size of a group. For example, Grade 7 and Grade 8 classes may need to travel with their respective groups and therefore visit the sites separately. These adjustments will be made on a case-by-case basis and communicated in advance.
If a participant feels ill and exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, chills, body aches, cough, shortness of breath), our team will help them isolate themselves immediately and safely. We will also work with our Doctors on Call or a local medical center to confirm next steps, testing and treatment. We would then, as required:
Jumpstreet will provide the necessary resources to facilitate the recommended treatment, including an isolated chaperoned location for the participant to recover, as well as arrangements for their return home.
