Megiddo Excavation Update Regarding Coronavirus Situation
Here in Israel, protective measures against COVID-19 continue to restrict certain daily life activities, air travel, and entry to the country for non-citizens. While there seems to be some improvement in Israel’s case numbers, there are no indications that things will return to safe and comfortable levels by June/July. We therefore made the decision, as many of our excavation colleagues here have also done, to cancel our field season for 2020. We are disappointed, but the health and safety of our team, staff and their families must be our highest priority. All currently registered team members will receive individual instructions for refunds and other logistics.
Our current plan is to be in the field in summer of 2021 (an odd numbered year, so take note!). As always, we encourage all of you to follow our news on social media and our website where we will provide all the information for the 2021 season. We will also be posting some fun and informative Megiddo content that we hope you will enjoy until we can see you again at the site! Our best wishes for good health go out to the whole Megiddo family!
