Safety is first and foremost for joining Experience House. All necessary precautions will be taken to mitigate COVID-19 exposure. We will be staying up to date with the latest country travel restrictions, which can be found here.
Coming to Experience House
Before you arrive
24 hours before your arrival, you are required to register via the Guatemalan Health Pass website. Once you have submitted your details, you must print, or, take a screenshot of the generated QR code to the form and bring it with you to the airport.
Upon arrival at the airport, you are required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test, or an Antigen Rapid Test dated no more than 72 hours before the date of your arrival in Guatemala, together with a printed copy of the form.
Without proof of a negative test result, you will not be permitted to enter Guatemala.
After you complete your test, please stay in self quarantine up until your flight to ensure the safety of other people in the group.
When you’re flying to Guatemala, you must wear a N95 mask to ensure property safety of any airborne pathogens. Similarly, if you take an Uber/Taxi to the house, please continue to wear your N95 mask.
You will be picked up at the airport with the folks in your house by a member of our team. For the first 3 days, you will be staying with your house, and not the whole group. You will be responsible for communicating with your group about your levels of comfort with COVID risks. (IE wearing masks indoors, only going maskless outdoors, etc.)
When you arrive at your house, your temperature will be taken before you enter the door. Additionally, you’ll be encouraged to take a shower and clean the clothes that you wore on the plane.
After 3 days, we will have a doctor visit to take COVID tests of the group. We will navigate risks (IE needing to quarantine someone) at that point. Afterwards, we will all be hanging out together as a group!
Experience House – Day to Day Life
All groceries will either be picked up by 1-2 members of the Experience House team on a weekly basis OR can be requested directly from the house staff.
Antigua is beautiful and we will likely be going outside or to the beach on weekends. However, going outside will be handled with extreme caution. Here are our general guidelines:
- Do not visit indoor environments
- Do not go out without notifying other members of the house
- Do not go out without proper COVID-19 protection gear
- Do not meet with people outside of Experience House unless you’ve talked with the group
- Do wash your hands when coming back from anywhere
- Do go on nature walks and enjoy the great outdoors
- Do enjoy eating at outdoor restaurants with proper COVID-19 precautions in place
- Do work on your projects outside
- Do go on drives to cool outdoor places
- Do enjoy yourself within reason
In the event that somebody gets COVID-19
While we hope nobody gets COVID-19 in the house, we will follow best practices to ensure the entire group’s safety in the instance that somebody contracts the virus.
It’s everybody’s personal responsibility to themselves and the group as a whole to be on the lookout for potential symptoms of COVID-19. See the symptoms of coronavirus here. Whether you feel the symptoms yourself or feel somebody else could have symptoms, please let us know directly so we can handle the situation further.
After we’ve identified any potential symptoms, we will drive you to a testing facility to get same day results. If you test negative, then you’ll be free to continue your experience at Experience House. If you test positive, then we’ll begin a self-quarantine.
If you test positive in the event of COVID-19 exposure then you will be on a mandated 7 day lockdown or until the test turns negative. Failure to comply will result in a removal of Experience House.
Though we don’t expect this to happen, we will still make your trip as memorable as possible. There are plenty of beautiful trails around and we’ll set you up with your own wifi hotspot. The separate accommodations are lovely and we’ll bring food and beverages directly to your bedroom, with the occasional love letter slipped under your door.
Treatment will range depending on the severity of your case. If you struggle to breathe or have any of the other severe symptoms, then we will drive you to Antigua’s national hospital, Hospital Nacional Pedro de Bethancourt.
If your symptoms are mild or non-existent, then you’ll probably be ok and treatment will largely be unnecessary.
