COVID-19 Urgent Update for Current Participants

March 20, 2020

Spirit Cultural Exchange is closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the effect the situation is having on our current participants in the USA. Please read our current recommendations to participants below.

At Spirit, our number one priority is the health, safety, and welfare of every participant, and we are working with each to develop a plan that best achieves that as we navigate the current unprecedented crisis.

Following are Spirit’s current recommendations to our participants in the USA:

  • Spirit Advises Immediate Return of all Active Participants
    Considering the increasing numbers of COVID-19 infections worldwide and in the USA, Spirit participants currently in the USA are advised to return immediately to their home countries unless travel restrictions prevent it. Participants who have not yet been in touch with their Spirit representative to discuss return travel home should call Spirit at 1 800 390 0978 or email
  • Staying Safe
    All participants currently in the USA are advised to follow the guidance of their local authorities and that of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), particularly with regards to hand washing and social distancing measures. Participants should not be congregating in groups and should try to distance themselves as much as possible from others to ensure their health, safety, and welfare until they can return home.

Any participants in need of assistance should contact Spirit at 1 800 390 0978 or
