Effective July 1, 2021, the university will allow business-related travel in line with updated health and safety requirements and our continued focus on fiscal responsibility.

Faculty and staff are expected to exercise prudent fiscal management when considering FY22 travel arrangements to determine whether in person or virtual attendance at any event, program or other circumstance will be most effective. Travel has been restricted since March 2020 because of the pandemic, and we should utilize the lessons learned about our ability to conduct business in flexible and efficient ways.

Health recommendations: Only fully vaccinated people should consider travel. Those who are unvaccinated should consider virtual alternatives. University-sponsored travelers are expected to follow CDC travel guidelines related to mask requirements, distancing guidelines and other relevant safety measures.

Risks associated with COVID-19: Locations have disparate risks associated with COVID-19. Travel is not recommended to destinations that are experiencing a surge in cases.

International travel: Travelers should consult information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Department of State to determine the current immigration status for entry, public health measures including requirements for pre-travel COVID-19 tests, quarantine upon arrival and other guidelines. Country-specific requirements can be viewed at For more information on guidance and protocols, please refer to the Office of Business and Finance travel guidance.
