Starting July 31, 2020, the International Travel Oversight Committee will accept petitions for exception from faculty, staff and graduate/ professional students to pursue essential university-sponsored and supported international travel.
Details including the definition of “essential” and the process to submit a petition for exception can be found at https://global.wustl.edu/resources/interim-intl-travel-guidance/.
All travel is subject to changes in travel conditions and public health guidance.
Contact email@example.com with any questions.
Some local jurisdictions may have Stay at Home orders in place. Employees and students should check with their local government to determine if restrictions are in effect where they live.
All non-essential university-sponsored travel is suspended until further notice.
Requests to engage in essential university-sponsored travel must be approved by the chancellor or the provost, a dean, executive vice chancellor, or vice chancellor. All approved essential travel must be registered here.
As of May 7, 2020, all Danforth-based 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. This is an update to previous guidance strongly discouraging personal travel outside of the St. Louis region.
Effective May 7, all faculty, staff and trainees of the School of Medicine are allowed to resume personal travel outside a 60-mile radius of the Medical Campus. They previously had been restricted from doing so in an attempt to ensure an adequate workforce during a patient surge from the coronavirus outbreak and to reduce the spread of the virus on the Medical Campus. For additional information, please consult the School of Medicine’s policy.
