COVID-19 Policy

General information regarding APW's COVID-19 policies and procedures.

Au Pair Weekend continues to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with guidelines from state and local health departments and our university partners to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff across all of our locations.  Please review our COVID-19 policies below before registering for an in-person class. 

Please stay mindful of the symptoms of COVID-19. If you happen to test positive for COVID-19 before a weekend course, please notify our staff right away. You will be eligible to attend classes if the start of the weekend is at least 7 days since your symptoms first appeared and you have gone 24 hours fever-free. The 7-day period still applies if you are asymptomatic (no symptoms) but have tested positive for Covid-19. You will also be eligible to switch to a later course or to a fully online course. Please note some transfer fees may apply.

If you start to feel sick during one of the weekend courses, you will be asked to take a Covid-19 test.  If you test positive, you will be asked to leave the course to limit exposure to other students.  Depending on the number of hours completed, we will work with you to either assign make-up work or to transfer you to another course where you can finish your hours.  Some transfer fees may apply.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Students who risk the safety of their fellow classmates and fail to comply with these policies will be asked to leave the program and will not be eligible for a refund. By attending an APW course, you acknowledge and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
