    Schedule your COVID-19 PCR Test
    Students not up-to-date on their vaccination need to arrive with a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival. 

    If you are considered fully vaccinated by the CDC, you do not need to coordinate or receive any COVID-19 PCR tests prior to your expedition, but you will need to submit a copy of your vaccination card with your other paperwork before the trip begins.
