All University domestic and international non-essential travel for employees and students is suspended until further notice. We will continue to monitor and update this suspension in accordance with government recommendations and Church travel guidelines. Future travel requests will take a conservative approach and approvals will only be granted with exceptions given by line management Vice Presidents. In instances when no alternative is viable and an exception is granted, the same precautions would be expected for social distancing and other safety measures as is being done in the classroom. This may raise some costs as vehicle occupancy would be significantly reduced. Lodging, camping, and other experiences will also need to be modified. No expenditures should be made for any previously approved travel until directed to do so by Travel Administration.
For instructions on how to request an exception to travel and to view the COVID-19 Travel Guidelines and Exception Process, please view the link below. If travel is approved, it is the traveler’s responsibility to stay up to date on state and local guidelines & restrictions for the locations they are traveling to.
