As an agency, we are following CDC, WHO, and State Department websites for guidance. Each family is unique and has its own challenges to face and will handle this pandemic in their own way. Hosting an au pair will require open, clear, and honest communication with trust to establish a workable and healthy environment for all parties.
As information regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve, we recommend reviewing CDC, WHO, and State Department websites for the most up-to-date information. We continue to take our guidance from the CDC and the U.S. State Department and encourage all participants to follow their recommendations, including:
- If you feel sick, stay at home.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for a minimum of 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue when sneezing or coughing.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever or a cough.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
- If you have a fever, stay home until you are fever-free for at least 24 hours.
We are optimistic that when the Executive Order expires December 31st, 2020, au pair J-1 visas will begin to be issued as before. Though travel from certain countries may be more difficult and quarantine periods may be required, we are ramping up to prepare for this large group of arrivals.We have a large pool of potential au pairs who are waiting to find host families that are ready and able to welcome them in the new year.We are currently accepting all new registrations and helping families look for the best au pair to fit their needs.
Register today and prepare for the new year!
