Our number one concern is the health and safety of our students, staff, volunteers, guests, and community, therefore, Inland Seas Education Association is following CDC recommended guidelines and taking precautionary measures during this time of crisis. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will make additional adjustments as necessary.
On June 11, 2021, the US Coast Guard updated its mask wearing policy for commercial vessels to state that masks are no longer required in outdoor spaces. Thus, Inland Seas Education Association will no longer require mask wearing for passengers, crew, and instructors above deck. We ask that you still bring a mask with you for your program as masks will still be required for everyone regardless of vaccination status when below deck. Masks are still strongly encouraged for those that are not fully vaccinated on all parts of the vessel. If you have any questions about our masking policy, please let us know. Thank you for your patience as we navigate through changes to COVID-19 requirements.
