International travel continues to be suspended and this will only be reviewed when the current US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and US Department of State (DOS) travel restrictions have been relaxed.  For travel to be considered, a location will have to be CDC Level 0 or 1 AND DOS Level 1, 2, or 3.  At this time, no locations meet those criteria. We will provide additional guidance to the campus when this occurs.  Until further notice, no international travel should be planned or scheduled. 

Check current CDC Risk Assessment Levels.
Check current DOS Travel Advisory Levels.

We maintain a strong recommendation against non-essential domestic travel.  For further advice please consult CDC Guidelines for Domestic Travel.

Additional information on travel policies, both international and domestic, can be found on the University website
