Argentina Travel Advice: COVID-19 Update MedPage Today

As a result of the measures taken by the Argentinian government to contain the COVID 19, Voluntario Global has cancelled all volunteer programs until further notice and is joining in the implementation of all necessary prevention measures.

The Coronavirus pandemic is continuing to escalate with governments around the world taking drastic measures to limit people’s mobility and imposing self-quarantining policies. As many countries around the world, Argentina has imposed a 14 day self-quarantining for tourists arriving during the month of march. Therefore, our current recommendation for volunteers is to consider delaying their trips until May 2 or later in the year. 

We’re committed to looking after the safety, health and wellbeing of our volunteers and projects, as much as possible in this time of pandemic anxiety. We know the world will keep turning, people will keep exploring, and very soon life will return to normal. 

Likewise, as a social organization we ratify our solidarity. Prudence, prevention, information and solidarity go hand in hand. Isolation is not the answer in these cases: we build health among all of us.
