Protocol for Homestays

  •  Assure students have a means of communicating with trip leader during homestay.
  • Do not send students to a homestay where a family member is exhibiting signs of a contagious illness. Err on the side of health, not cultural sensitivity or academics.
  • If homestay family member exhibit signs of contagious illness:
    • Student should immediately contact tour leader.
    • The tour leader then makes other arrangements for student‘s housing.
  • If leader is unable to find an alternate homestay for student, alternate lodging will be arranged.
  • If a student exhibits signs of illness prior to or during home-stay:
    • Exempt student from home-stay experience and find alternative.
    • Initiate Protocol for Illness.
