Please note that the University’s safety guidelines relating to travel continue to be in effect.
Students or employees who choose to travel to another state in the U.S. with a COVID-19 positive testing rate of 10% or higher on a seven-day rolling average must take one of two safety measures prior to returning to campus, either:
- Self-quarantine for 14 days without symptoms of COVID-19 arising, or
- Self-quarantine for a minimum of 7 days and then be tested for COVID-19 with a negative test result.
To determine the positive testing rate for a given state, the University will utilize the data supplied daily by the John Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center through its website link “Testing Trends Tool”. If the state to which you traveled is shown to have a positive testing percentage of 10% or higher on the day of your return, you will have to take one of the two safety measures outlined above before returning to campus.
During the quarantine period, students would need to move to virtual/online instruction and employees would need to move to working remotely. If an employee is unable to work remotely during the quarantine period, he/she would need to use available vacation, personal, or sick time hours in order to be compensated.
If you have any questions, please contact the Wellness Center (for students) or Human Resource Office (for employees).
