Covid-19 Travel Information
Starting December 6, all air passengers, regardless of vaccination status, CDC requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before travel to the United States. More information on this requirement can be found here.
Travel requests submitted through Concur, System Risk Management will indicate the travel is not approved for non-COVID-19 related issues and cite the reason in the comments section of the form.
System Risk Management will use the CDC Level 4 labeled countries as our starting point for non-approved travel related to the COVID-19 pandemic. System Risk Management will take a discerning view of each country and weigh travel restrictions by the country, their medical system effectiveness, individual country requirements for travel upon arrival and other considerations prior to approving or not. Again, member Executives or their designees may approve the travel if it is considered essential to the mission of the institution.
See the summary below and relevant links as you manage international travel at your respective institutions.
- Current restricted international travel will be modified to reflect extreme risk countries (for non-related COVID-19 conditions) and on a case-by-case basis for CDC Level 4 COVID-19 countries.
