Tecate Safety Update

March 6, 2020

Please view TKA's COVID-19 webpage for updates related to the coronavirus and impact on travel.

December 3, 2019
We are regularly checking the US Department of State website for updates. Currently there are no threats or concerns at the Tecate border crossing, nor do we anticipate any due to Tecate's relatively remote location. Please note: Recent incidents of violence reported in the news occurred approximately 600 miles away from Tecate in the Mexican state of Sonora which borders Arizona.

We are  in regular contact with our partner organizations in both Tecate and Tijuana, and they are keeping us informed of the most recent developments in the area. If at any point The King's Academy leadership team, or our partnering organizations, deem travel to the region unsafe, we will not hesitate to modify our plans or call off travel to that area.

TKA Service Trip Safety Guidelines

The King's Academy is continually monitoring threats and concerns that may affect the welfare of students on service trips. We regularly check the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization for health updates and the U.S. State Department for travel advisories. At no time will we organize a trip with a travel advisory to a country that exceeds a Level 2 warning. We are also in contact with partner organizations in our planned service locations. If at any point we, or the partnering organization, deem travel unsafe, we will not hesitate to modify our plans or call off travel to that area. For questions, contact Julie Young, Service Outreach Coordinator, at x4385 or Rob Starke, Campus Pastor, at x4270
