Wow, so COVID-19 happened. None of us at Fiver Star Homestays predicted what disturbance and shock this pandemic would bring to the world and Canada during 2020. As a student, you may be wondering if we are operating and what measures we have in place to protect you from the virus.

Well, be rest assured here at Five Star Homestays we have your best interests at heart.

During preparing and now implementing the new normal, we are still accepting applications and request international students to do the following:

Upon your arrival in Canada with your host family, you must go into quarantine (self-isolate).

Protocols To Follow

Once you secure your accommodation, we have a new “COVID-19 ARRIVAL” protocol, which outlines your expectations as students throughout your journey.

Before you leave, while you are en route, arrival, and guidelines for your quarantine (if required).

Inside this protocol, there is also guidance, tips, and resources for host families to adhere to.

Consent Form

As a student, you and your biological parents will need to sign a document as a form of acceptance into the homestay program. If anything else happens, this protocol will be updated accordingly as more than one direction becomes available from the government of Canada and your country of origin.

Safety Measures To Follow

Remember to do the following during your homestay:

  1. Thoroughly wash your hands regularly throughout the day. It would be best if you were washing for at least 20 seconds, with hot water and soap
  2. Don’t touch your face.
  3. Wear a face mask when out in public and keep 2 metres apart from the next person
  4. Regularly clean and disinfect furniture at home.
