3131 Elliott Avenue, Suite 250 Seattle, WA USA 98121 Toll Free l 888 979 2061 T +180 2 490 3642 Quark Expeditions Vaccination Policy as of January 17th, 2023 As the global COVID-19 situation continues to improve, Quark Expeditions will be easing COVID-19 restrictions for the beginning of the coming Antarctic sailing season. Effective October 1 st , passengers will no longer be required to test for COVID-19 prior to departure or upon embarkation. Unless required by the relevant authorities, only passengers who report symptoms of COVID-19 to the medical team during a voyage will be tested. Onboard measures will also be relaxed. Most significantly, while passenger-facing staff and crew will continue to mask indoors, masks will now be optional for passengers except on certain charter flights where required by the airline. All onboard and adventure activities and spa and fitness facilities will return to normal, pre-pandemic operations. As vaccination has been a significant driver of immunity and the reduction of disease severity, we will still require proof of vaccination to board. To join a Quark Expeditions voyage, we ask passengers to present official government proof of a primary vaccination series completed more than 14 days prior to boarding. We recommend guests receive any additional boosters available to them. As the world has learned over the past two years, the situation with COVID-19 is ever-changing and while Quark Expeditions is committed to returning operations to normal, measures may have to change should the countries in which we operate change their regulations or in cases where extraordinary circumstances dictate. For more details on Quark Expeditions' updated protocols, please consult the FAQ.
