Please be reminded of COVID protocol from the US CDC as SAS will be observing these measures: go to
the latest guidance for personal vehicles at  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-
coping/using-transportation.html#PersonalVehicles . Generally said, on SAS in-person Field Trips,
share rides with your family and/or others who have been fully vaccinated. For those who are not fully
vaccinated, for everyone’s comfort, drive yourself; if not fully vaccinated but are car-pooling, mask up
and maintain social distancing.  For the un-vaccinated, the CDC says “get vaccinated”; for those in
between 2-shot vaccination protocols and therefore not fully immunized, continue to mask up for
these SAS Field Trips. And, for all of us, make sure your vehicle has good ventilation.
