COVID-19 (Corona Virus) Related Travel Restrictions
All College-affiliated/funded international travel is prohibited until further notice.
Additionally, per recently revised CDC guidelines, any student, faculty or staff returning from a country designated by the State Department Travel Advisory as Level 2, 3, or 4 because of COVID-19 will be expected to self-quarantine off-campus for a 14-day period. This policy is effective immediately. State Department Level designations are subject to change, so please be mindful of all upcoming international travel, especially personal travel. If you travel to a location that is designated to a Level 2, 3, or 4 while you are there, the self-quarantine expectation will still apply.
All College-affiliated/funded travel taking place after Sunday, March 15, at 5 p.m., is now prohibited unless expressly approved by your vice-president. This includes travel to conferences and other professional activities.
The College is strongly discouraging any travel to locations within the United States where there is an intense concentration of cases of COVID-19, as well as travel by cruise ship. If you choose to travel to these affected areas, you will be expected to self-quarantine off-campus for a 14-day period before returning to campus.
Students are banned from hosting visitors on-campus who have been exposed to the virus, whose school is temporarily closed due to the virus, or who have recently traveled to one of the areas specified in the College’s Travel Restrictions.
Returning From Travel
Any student, faculty, or staff returning from or traveling through Level 2, 3, or 4 countries should immediately notify Campus Safety. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, you should contact a health-care provider and follow their instructions for evaluation.
Additional questions related to College-affiliated travel may be directed to the appropriate vice president.
McDaniel Travel Registry: Communicating about Travel
To assist in the process of maintaining a healthy campus, the College is also implementing a Travel Registry as the College’s official means for sharing urgent health, safety and security-related information. Having a working knowledge of where all community members are traveling during this outbreak is important to help ensure the safety of our campus.
To that end, we request that all students, staff and faculty who will be engaged in travel outside of a 100-mile radius submit their plans through the Travel Registry.
