Travel Prohibitions and Recommendations

Travel Prohibitions and Recommendations

School-related domestic travel is allowed with the approval of your supervisor. School-related international travel must be approved by the chancellor.

Domestic Travel (travel within the State of North Carolina and the United States)

COVID-19 restrictions on university related domestic travel previously issued by the UNC System Office are rescinded. University personnel should continue to follow the latest CDC guidance on domestic travel: Domestic Travel During COVID-19 (opens in new tab). In particular, the CDC recommends that domestic travel should be delayed until the individual is fully vaccinated. For those individuals not fully vaccinated, the CDC recommends wearing a face covering, getting tested for COVID-19 1-3 days prior to the trip and within 3-5 days upon return, and self-quarantining for 7 full days after travel (10 days if not tested upon return).

Foreign Travel (travel outside the United States) 

Because the severity of COVID-19 conditions still vary internationally, foreign travel remains restricted to travel approved by the chancellor, upon determination that the foreign travel is essential for academic research or university business. In the limited instances where foreign travel is approved, university personnel should continue to follow the latest CDC guidance on international travel: International Travel During COVID-19 (opens in new tab). In addition, institutions must continue to monitor and follow U.S. Department of State restrictions on international travel (opens in new tab).
