On March 13, 2020, Gov. Reynolds implemented a moratorium on all non-essential travel by state employees. In accordance with the governor’s travel moratorium and based on direction from the Board of Regents, the university is prohibiting all non-essential university-sponsored travel by faculty,  staff and students, including all student organizations, effective immediately. This moratorium includes domestic travel as well as international travel (which was previously prohibited by the Board of Regents). This moratorium does not apply to personal travel./p>

Future travel should not be scheduled or commenced until further notice.

Employees returning from a country subject to a CDC Level 3 or Level 4 Travel Notice may not return to campus or their worksite until the conclusion of the 14-day self-isolation period prescribed by the CDC, IDPH, or Department of Homeland Security. Employees returning from a cruise will also be subject to this 14-day self-isolation requirement and should not come to campus or their worksite until the conclusion of this period. Employees must report such travel or cruise activity by completing this survey. Employees who are required to self-isolate may telework as access and responsibilities allow. Otherwise, they will be expected to use accrued sick leave, vacation, or comp time, as applicable, to remain in paid status. If no accruals are available for use, those who are ‘hourly paid salary’ or ‘salaried’ will code Off Duty (unpaid leave) on their timecard. (Added on 3/18/2020)
