Our Response To COVID19

Our health and safety policy is in compliance with Kansas City and Jackson County’s ordinances and regulations.  As the situation is unpredictable and the regulations are constantly changing, we are doing our best to maintain the safest environment for our staff and students.

How will the classroom and times of worship be set up to ensure safety from COVID?
We have a spacious 40-acre property with many facilities. Our classroom facilities will be regularly disinfected, cleaned, and allow for social distancing.
 How will housing be set up to ensure they are clean and safe?
Each room will be thoroughly disinfected and sanitized before arrival.  Cleaning supplies will be readily available for you to maintain the cleanliness of your room.
How will meals be prepared?
Meals will be prepared by our kitchen staff who are licensed according to the Kansas City’s Health Department.  Kitchen staff will also be wearing the appropriate gear (masks, gloves, etc.) to ensure the safe handling of food on base.
Social Distancing:  Our 40-acre campus allows students to enjoy the park-like atmosphere with outdoor benches, outdoor eating space, indoor/ outdoor coffee shop, and recreational sport. 
Dining Hall: The YWAM KC dining hall is large enough to allow social distancing for meals. There is also the option of picking up a meal and eating outdoors or in the dorms. 
Classrooms: Classrooms are spacious and allow for social distancing while enjoying the lecture phases.
Enhanced Cleaning: Extra effort is made regularly to thoroughly clean dorms, eating areas, and other public areas.
 What will the outreach look like now, taking COVID into consideration? Will the outreaches be international or in-state?
It is our hope to send outreach teams internationally as soon as possible.  However, with the unpredictability of COVID19 and its impact on nations and borders, we will prepare for both international and domestic outreaches.
 Is there additional health insurance I need to purchase?
Students will not be required to purchase any additional health insurance besides what is already required for DTS. 
Will I need to bring a mask?
Yes, please bring a mask that is reusable.
YWAM KC WILL CONTINUE TO STRIVE TO BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL NEW HEALTH DEPARTMENT UPDATES AS WE NAVIGATE COVID19. [UPDATED JULY 19, 2020]
