In order to ensure the safety and health of participants and community members the group may meet, Entwine requires that all participants and staff take and submit a PCR test within 72 hours of the time their Insider Trip begins. Those who have recently recovered and cannot present a negative PCR test must present a certificate of recovery provided by a licensed physician to participate, and a negative antigen test conducted at a medical office/clinic.
In addition, participants will be asked to test each day during the course of the trip in an effort to keep you, other participants, and the local communities as safe as possible. Your participation fee will cover any required testing during the course of the trip. For more information, see here.
