COVID-19 Travel Considerations
International and domestic mobility during the pandemic should put health and safety first. Travel will require careful planning and flexibility to adjust plans as conditions change.

The campus COVID-19 information will be updated regularly to align with emerging best practices in COVID-risk mitigation and exposure/infection management. Revisit this site often for updates.
Health conditions and care abroad
Preparation is particularly important for travelers that are taking prescription medication or currently in regular treatment for a health condition such as anxiety, arthritis, depression, diabetes or an eating disorder, etc. Learn about traveling with health conditions or a disability, traveling with medications abroad and managing dietary requirements.
