Our team is committed to the wellbeing and safety of all program participants and to those of the Bahía de los Ángeles community. We are so grateful to continue our field programs and we strive to provide a safe environment for all participants, staff and our community members.
All participants in a Vermilion Sea Institute program in 2022 will need to provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the start of the program. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in helping us create a safe environment for all.
During this time of widespread pandemic, we are committed to using the best available science and resources to maintain our COVID-19 operations plan.

As of January 2022, there has been no known transmission of COVID-19 at VSFS.
Since June 2020, VSFS has been running in-person courses, apprenticeships, and the Aventureros program, all in addition to hosting independent researchers and scholars. As of December 2021, we have had no known cases of COVID-19 transmission. We credit this success largely to our visitors, participants, and team members following the protocols outlined in our Safety Commitments and Participant Pledge. We are thankful to everyone for continuing to do their part to keep the field station COVID-free!
