Working to Keep Students Safe
The pandemic has been difficult for us all. Whether it’s an inability to work, stress and anxiety around your safety and the safety of your family, financial strain, or even personal loss, we have all experienced some form of hardship during the past 2 years. One loss that we experienced was the ability to travel and see other parts of the world. As travel begins to open up and people feel more and more comfortable, it is essential that we take proper precautions to maintain our own safety and the safety of the local communities that we are visiting. At Spain Abroad, we are committed to the safety of our students and the safety of the people of Spain.
We continue to monitor flights and flight protocols and follow all CDC guidelines.
