7/19/2021: China currently has a mandatory 14+7 day quarantine requirement. As the pandemic still rages around the world, it is difficult to know when this travel restriction will be lifted in China. It will not be realistic to operate the 9-week China Summer Program if the program participants need to spend 3 weeks in quarantine. We will continue to monitor the quarantine situation in China and update this page when the quarantine requirement is removed or is significantly reduced.
