Updated guidance on personal travel

Effective today, all Danforth Campus faculty and staff, including those whose physical presence is required on campus to perform essential services, may travel beyond a 60-mile radius of campus at their discretion, as long as their activities are authorized by any Stay at Home orders that may be in place in the areas where they are traveling. This is an update to previous guidance strongly discouraging personal travel outside of the St. Louis region. All university-sponsored travel is still prohibited at this time.
