If you are planning to travel for spring break, or any other reason, you are strongly encouraged to check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COVID-19 travel page, State Department travel advisories and the World Health Organization travel advice for the latest information before departing. While the university does not set requirements for personal travel, we strongly urge you to forgo travel to areas with active community transmission or high-risk countries as designated by the CDC.

If you choose to travel to a country with widespread, sustained transmission, as designated by the CDC (Level 3), you will be asked to stay home for 14 days from the time you left an area with widespread, sustained community spread (Level 3 Travel Health Notice countries). View the list of the Level 3 Travel Health Notice countries.

Whether you decide to travel or not, remember to follow the CDC’s guidance for hygiene, and we encourage you to consider the overall risks associated with your decisions related to spring break or other travel. Travel alerts and self-isolation requirements may change quickly as the situation evolves. If you are traveling, please discuss your plans with your family and emergency contacts and give them your detailed travel itinerary.
