Traveling? Make sure to read this first!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is possible that you could be exposed to the virus as you travel. The CDC recommends anyone who travels should be cautious - avoid crowds, wear a mask, wash hands frequently - and limit non-essential activities upon returning home.

Returning to work and school, is of course, an essential activity. That said, we do ask you to use extra care to help keep your colleagues/classmates and others safe.

If you feel sick, stay home. Look for symptoms of COVID-19 and take your temperature before coming to school.

The CDC also recommends the following for people who have recently traveled:

  • 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.
  • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.

Also take these actions for 14 days after you return from travel to protect others from getting COVID-19:

  • Stay at least 6 feet from anyone who did not 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 are in shared spaces outside of your home, including when using public transportation.
  • If there are people in the household who did not travel with you, wear a mask and ask everyone in the household to wear masks in shared spaces inside your home.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness.

Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements after travel.

For international travel, follow federal guidelines. Visit U.S. Department of State: Travel and CDC: COVID-19 Travel Recommendations by Destination for more information.
