Domestic Travel

 

Effective June 15, 2020, the university returned to normal approval processes for all domestic travel.

 

Trips for all domestic travel need to be created and approved through workflow. ProTrav is now available for the creation of domestic trips for purposes other than COVID-19.

International Travel

 

International travel will continue to be restricted. 

 

The Iowa Board of Regents’ rolling 30-day university-sponsored international travel ban remains in effect, and travel to any area with high numbers of infection should be avoided. As the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving situation, the board will continue to evaluate this on a daily basis and provide additional guidance if needed.

Study Abroad and Student Travel

 

The current ban on UI student travel abroad has been extended for departures through at least Dec. 15, 2020.

 

This recommendation is based on established student travel policy that prohibits travel when there is a Level 4 do not travel advisory from the U.S. Department of State, the CDC Level 3 warning, and the need for students to have advance time to solidify alternate study plans.

Personal Travel

 

You will not be expected to self-isolate after returning from travel at this time.

 

With community and statewide spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are working under the expectation that all university employees are at risk of exposure and therefore will not be expected to self-isolate after returning from travel at this time.
