All university related travel – both domestic and international – has been suspended until further notice.
CDC doesn’t recommend traveling during the pandemic since travel can increase your chance of spreading and getting COVID-19. Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
Don’t travel if you’re sick or test positive for COVID-19. Don’t travel with someone who is sick.
If you do travel away from campus, consider these recommendations:
Limit exposure to others for two full weeks prior to your departure. The safest choice is to avoid leaving your residence except to go to class, get meals, exercise safely or seek medical attention. You should also limit social interactions with others.
Avoid using public transportation, if possible. If you must use public transportation, you should get tested ahead of your departure and self-quarantine until your negative test results are posted.
Plan ahead for additional safety measures, like travel restrictions, which can be found here.
Stay up to date with the CDC’s travel health notices.
Monitor the spread of the virus in your destination area here.
Keep in mind, you may have been exposed to COVID-19 on your travels even if you feel well and don’t have any symptoms. You and your travel companions (including children) may pose a risk to your family, friends and community after your travel.
Consider getting tested with a viral test 3–5 days after your trip and reduce non-essential activities for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don’t get tested, consider reducing non-essential activities for 10 days.
Also take these actions for 14 days after you return from travel to protect others from getting COVID-19:
Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from anyone who didn’t travel with you, particularly in crowded areas. It’s important to do this everywhere — both indoors and outdoors.
Wear a mask to keep your nose and mouth covered when you’re in shared spaces outside of your home.
If there are people in the household who didn’t travel with you, wear a mask and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home.
