Travel guidance

All University-related international travel is prohibited. University-related domestic travel must receive prior approval by a supervising dean or vice president.

As domestic and international travel continues to be cautioned by the CDC and Florida’s Department of Health, particularly during the current surge, the University is updating its travel advisories and policies. The University strongly discourages overnight travel outside of Florida (by any means of transportation) or air travel within the state of Florida during the current surge of the pandemic. All members of the community are required to adhere to these requirements prior to entering and when working on any University campus or facility.

Clinical faculty and staff

All travel, both international and domestic, by any employee who operates in or supports clinical care requires supervisor approval to ensure appropriate staffing levels should situations warrant. Review the employee screening/return to work from travel policy for clinical faculty and staff.
