FAQ's On COVID-19

“What the enemy meant for evil, God meant for good.” (Genesis 50:20)

There's no doubt that our adversary, the devil, does not want the Gospel of Jesus Christ to spread around the world. Despite Covid-19, we are ready for 2021 and committed to supporting and uniting the local Church in the U.S. and Nicaragua. We press forward in faith as we serve children and families in our barrios. The needs are great, and we are ready to host your team as we answer these challenges together.

Although the risk of infection is very low, we are committed to the safety of your team as we prepare to serve you in 2021. Here’s a brief guideline as to what you can expect:


1. Is Covid present in Nicaragua?

  • Thankfully, there have been minimal infections of COVID-19 and virtually nonexistent in our barrio's. 

  • Most public facilities require the use of masks.

2. What is required to travel to Nicaragua?

  • A PCR Covid test taken 72 hours prior to departure, but negative test results must be submitted to the government via email 36 hours after the test is taken (we anticipate this to be relaxed in the near future). Masks are required in airport facilities and the duration of your flight. *Please check with your local testing facilities for the availability and cost of quick testing results.

3. What is required to travel back to the U.S.?

  • A Covid test taken 72 hours prior to departure. Negative test results presented upon boarding your plane in Managua. The cost is $150 paid directly to the testing facility.

4. What is CCM doing to mitigate the risks of exposure?

  • Our staff Physician, Dr. Ariana Cordero will be present with teams to provide guidance and observation.

  • Limited exposure to public areas outside of our facilities such as restaurants, stores, etc.

  • Masks to be worn in accordance with local mandates (stores, restaurants, etc.).

  • Increased sanitization of housing, transportation, and common areas.

  • Decreased number of guests per room at our mission campuses, allowing for social distancing.

  • Staggered dining when more than one team is present.

  • Hand sanitizer available at all times, supplied by both the team and CCM.

 

5. What about serving in the barrios?

  • We will have water/soap for hand-washing and hand sanitizer with us at all times.

  • Each Church will have a hand-washing station for teams to use, as well as the people from the communities who attend.

  • While going door-to-door and interacting with children, please wear a mask and exercise appropriate judgment with regard to distancing.

 

6. What if I’m directly exposed to someone confirmed with COVID while in Nicaragua?

  • In consultation with our staff physician and the team leader, we determine if you need to be housed in a separate area on our campus.

 

7. What happens if I show symptoms?

  • Our staff physician will closely monitor and evaluate your condition.
  • We will provide housing in a separate area on our campus.

 

8. Can I be tested for COVID in Nicaragua?

  • Yes, we have partnered with a testing facility with limited exposure to others.

 

9. What if I test positive for COVID?

  • In consultation with your team leader and our staff physician, we will determine a course of action for treatment and quarantine if necessary.

  • Our insurance policy provides supplemental pandemic coverage as well as med-evac coverage, to ensure our team members are well cared for in the event that medical care is required.

 

10. What about quarantine in Nicaragua?
